Views of Wind Development from Michigan’s Windfarm Communities

« Return to CLOSUP Wind Project Publication Listing

February 2017

Abstract

This report presents summary survey results for the CLOSUP Wind Project's Landowner Survey. In June 2016, landowners in ten Michigan townships with utility-scale windfarms were mailed a survey about their experiences with wind energy. The survey sent to these landowners aimed to gauge their attitudes about wind energy in their communities, and then tried to understand what might account for the different experiences so that other communities who are considering wind development can ensure that it respects local community values.
