A large wind turbine on a grassy plain near a solar photovoltaic array and a lake.

Shown here is a 2.3-megawatt distributed energy wind turbine that, along with a nearby 500-kilowatt solar photovoltaic array, provides power to a Minnesota electric cooperative.

NREL and the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory are launching two new resources that provide comprehensive information, tools, and support to anyone interested in installing distributed wind turbines and taking advantage of the benefits of onsite energy. The National Distributed Wind Network and the Distributed Wind Resource Hub will help farmers, municipalities, homeowners, and business owners navigate their decision making around distributed wind—with the ultimate goal of getting more distributed wind turbines deployed across the country.
