The Renewable Energy Reader

3 Wind

As wind power is poised to become more than a fringe source in the electricity generation pool, we are beginning to see more pushback against it. This chapter explores the background of wind power, the property status of wind, and then various areas of legal conflict between wind and wildlife, wind and humans, and wind and the development of other resources. Finally, most wind farm siting is currently controlled at the local level, so this chapter addresses the ramifications of the local-control construct.
