Wind Projects in MWEC's Footprint


Information about wind projects within MWEC states can now be found in our Wind Library.  

The data came from OpenEI, which is a wiki jointly maintained by the US DOE, NREL, and Reegle.  Each wind project has its own page in our library that includes information such as the owner, when it was built, what kind of turbines it uses, and includes an inset map. 

Check out the wind projects here.
