Commonwealth Wind Update
July 2011: In partnership with MassCEC, CLF Ventures prepared a guide to understanding land-based wind energy issues that we hope will help decision-makers make informed decisions and navigate the complex issues involved in siting land-based wind energy.
Through the Micro Wind Initiative, MassCEC has funded more than 70 awards to small wind projects. More than 60 of those projects are now installed and operating. MassCEC’s goal is to provide incentives for the installation of well-performing and responsibly-sited projects using commercially-proven technologies. Micro wind systems are supported through a hybrid rebate consisting of two parts:
Rebate 1: Will be based on the rated capacity of the system at 11 m/s (taken from the system’s power curve).
Rebate 2: Will be based on the verified estimate of kilowatt-hours produced by the system for its first year of operation.
HOW DO I LEARN MORE ABOUT WIND AND APPLY FOR A REBATE?
Prior to calling MassCEC for more information, prospective applicants are encouraged to speak to one or more installers about their potential project.
