The Green Communities Act set ambitious renewable
energy goals for the Commonwealth to meet by 2020. One of the key elements of
the State’s strategy is to substantially increase the amount of energy produced
by land-based wind generation facilities.
Wind facilities are not, however, without their
challenges. Understanding and mitigating those impacts on the local level in a
way that advances the State’s renewable energy agenda will require multiple
efforts that must also respect the concerns of neighboring
At this seminar, attendees learn the renewable
energy goals regarding land-based wind energy facilities and how those goals are
being advanced. In addition, attendees will gain an understanding of
how wind energy proponents address and overcome local challenges as they
navigate through increasing development opportunities throughout the
Commonwealth. A diverse panel of experts from the public and private sectors
will identify and discuss the key issues and possible solutions.
