Wind Farms 101 Webinar
Presented by L. Wade Patterson & Gary Snyder, RES
Recorded on August 15, 2012
There’s more to it than a single turbine turning in the wind. A new wind farm is currently under construction in Garfield County and the presenters will describe the components and how the assessor’s office can be involved way before the project starts and during the project development phase.
Many locations have wind, but it’s much more involved. The presenters will examine wind energy companies’ consideration of important factors such as environmental conditions, substation locations, a “grid” for purchase, transportation, and distribution besides the abundant, free, renewable natural resource, wind.
