"January 2010." "Great Lakes Wind Collaborative." Includes bibliographical references (p. 12).
The Great Lakes region has a widely varied policy framework to govern the development of wind energy facilities on the land. A wind energy facility can be a single turbine, but more often it is a group of turbines that are constructed as part of a single development project, commonly known as a "wind farm." This document compares and contrasts Great Lakes states and provincial policies that affect wind farm development. Some jurisdictions have developed siting guidelines for local implementation; others have developed enforceable regulations while still others have a hybrid approach.
