This article is Part 2 of a set of materials on renewable energy and land use. The article focuses on state and local government approaches to the siting of wind projects including a discussion of host community agreements.

Relevant and timely - I'll say! One of my students is working with Southern Alliance for Clean Energy on their model wind-siting ordinance this semester! I forwarded your post to him.
