Community Wind across America Wind Mid Atlantic Conference — Date Change to February 2011

Windustry has announced a date change for the Community Wind across America Wind Mid Atlantic Conference, in State College, PA, originally scheduled for late November, 2010.

The new date is February 8-9, 2011
State College, Pennsylvania
Penn Stater Conference Center Hotel

The Mid Atlantic conference is one of three presented by Windustry, with support from the U.S. Department of Energy funding and national partnering Nordic WindPower, designed to provide the full range of what’s needed for rural landowners, local investors, and community leaders to unlock the economic growth potential of locally-owned wind energy.

“We look forward great event in February, with solid information for getting locally-owned wind projects up running.” said Windustry Executive Director, Lisa Daniels.

The program will offer two tracks that cover Community Wind and Small Wind. Sessions address organizing local landowners, securing wind project financing, gaining governmental approval for supportive policy, and educating communities about the benefits of wind energy.

Attendees will include rural landowners, community leaders, elected officials, clean energy advocates, state and federal agencies, zoning and permitting officials, wind developers, educators and academics and economic development professionals, and a number of national leaders.

REGISTRATION is available at www.windustry.org or by phoning Catherine O’ Neill at 612-870-3477. Scholarships still available, contact Catherine O’Neill for more information.
