Small Wind for Homeowners, Ranchers, and Small Businesses

The National Renewable Energy Laboratory produced Small Wind Electric Systems Consumer's Guides to help homeowners, ranchers, and small businesses decide if wind energy will work for them. The U.S. map shows which states have small wind consumer's guides. Click on a state to download the guidebook. The U.S. Small Wind Guide is available in both English (PDF 1.3 MB) and Spanish (PDF 1.5 MB). And, there is an American Corn Growers Association Small Wind Guide (PDF 1.7 MB). Some of the following documents are available as Adobe Acrobat PDFs. Download Adobe Reader.
