Overview

Municipalities and corporations including both of the state’s

major electric utilities have announced pledges or plans to

significantly expand the use of renewable energy. Most of

this additional renewable energy development, at least in the

short-term, is expected to come from large-scale wind energy

projects sited in rural areas. But such projects are increasingly

being met with opposition in communities across the state. In

this session, panelists will provide practical suggestions for how

to arbitrate disagreements about wind energy and how to tell

fact from fiction when it comes to wind energy development.
