Welcome to Windustry
The Wind Program recently (Aug. 2013) released its first annual distributed wind technology market report. According to the report:
- Distributed wind systems account for 68 percent of all wind turbines installed in the U.S. in the past decade.
- Distributed wind capacity grew by 62 percent in 2012.
- Texas, Minnesota, Iowa, California, and Massachusetts led the states for all cumulative distributed wind installations over the past 10 years.
In May of 2013 Minnesota's net metering policy was updated to allow for a higher limit on the size of projects eligible for net metering. You can find a more detailed version of the policy here, but we've compiled the most important bits of information in this infographic for your visual and educational pleasure.
