Community scale wind is working to create energy independence and cost savings through locally generated power. It helps to decrease our dependence on fossil fuels, their associated high costs and negative environmental impacts, while keeping the financial and environmental benefits within the community. By installing a community scale wind turbine behind-the-meter, one can achieve all of these benefits along with the benefits of distributed generation. This poster is an introduction to behind-the-meter installations and to community scale wind. Project examples, including the 100kW Northern Power 100 at Riley County Public Works and the 1,000kW Nordic N1000 at the El Dorado Wetland and Water Reclamation Facility, will be provided. Components of a successful project and information on resources available for funding opportunities and regulatory issues will also be presented.
