Renewable Energy Atlas of the West

This online Atlas profiles wind, solar, geothermal, and biomass power resources in the West using high-resolution maps. An interactive map tool allows you to control your view and printing of the maps. The Atlas was designed as a resource for policy makers, advocates, landowners, and developers interested in producing electricity from renewable energy. The Land and Water Fund of the Rockies, Northwest Sustainable Energy for Economic Development, Green Info Network, and Integral GIS created the Web site. Sponsors include the Hewlett Foundation and The Energy Foundation.
