The Commonwealth Wind Program (“CommWind”) assists appropriately-sited wind energy development in Massachusetts that can help achieve the Commonwealth's goals for a clean environment and a robust economy. CommWind and its predecessor programs have been providing support to electric customers and the wind development community since 2000 and have helped to establish the Commonwealth as a thought leader in the field of appropriate wind energy development. MassCEC’s programmatic approach to appropriate siting for wind projects combines rigorous project analysis with an understanding of the need for careful, open decision making that involves all stakeholders. Detailed information regarding the Commonwealth Wind Program is available in the Commonwealth Wind Program Manual (PDF).
MassCEC supports appropriately-sited wind energy development through the following program areas:
