Expanding wind energy deployment requires communities to host wind projects, and research has shown that communities are more willing to host wind energy when they feel the planning process has been fair. A new WETO-funded paper by Berkeley Lab researchers looks at the planning process for two wind farms in Ohio and Minnesota, and argues that procedural justice in wind energy development requires: (1) community members to get similar information and participation opportunities, whether compensated or not, (2) local governments to get objective information needed to make good decisions, (3) neighbors able to meaningfully participate in decisions surrounding wind farm construction, operation, and decommissioning, and (4) project developers to consider and respect local contexts of power generation, and community members’ perspectives.
