SMALL and COMMUNITY WINDPOWER CONFERENCE & EXHIBITION

About the Conference

The Small and Community WINDPOWER Conference & Exhibition is one of the few industry events which focuses on the unique characteristics of small wind technology and community owned large scale wind project development.

The conference is designed to foster networking and encourage strategic thinking for the use of small/distributed wind technology and development of community owned wind projects. Learn the latest on national renewable energy legislation, technology costs, zoning requirements, utility interconnection, tax revenues and investment opportunities from small and community wind industry experts.

Small and Community Wind Defined

Small Wind (or distributed wind) refers to the type of wind technology used to create clean, emissions-free power for individual homes, farms, and small businesses. Small wind turbines come in a variety of sizes, able to power part or all of a residential home or small business.

Community Wind refers to the ownership of wind turbines by one or more members of a local community – farmers, schools, colleges, tribal governments, municipal utilities, local businesses, and rural electric cooperatives.
