In partnership with the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center, CLF Ventures recently released ‘Land-based Wind Energy: A Guide to Understanding the Issues and Making Informed Decisions.’
The guide provides municipal officials and other local decision-makers with overviews of wind energy siting issues as well as best practices for community engagement, according to CLF Ventures.
The guide includes the following:
– Guidelines for how to assess the quality of available information and how to resolve conflicting points;
– Overviews, contextual information and recommended reading on important topics such as wind turbine sound, shadow flicker, health, property values and energy project economics; and
– Recommendations on how to structure a robust local review process when siting wind energy projects.
