"Our Wind Co-Op" Brings Small Wind Turbines to the Northwest

Our Wind Co-Op is a cooperative that invests in small-scale (10-kilowatt) wind turbines for farms, ranches, and public and private facilities in the Northwest. Initially supported by grants from DOE's National Renewable Energy Laboratory and the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Rural Development program, Our Wind Co-Op is creating low-risk opportunities to explore on-farm green power production, distribution, ownership, and marketing models to meet local energy needs.
