Title: U.S. Wind Siting Regulation and Zoning Ordinances

Abstract

A collection of documented wind siting ordinances at the state, county, township, and local level throughout the United States. The data were compiled from several sources including, DOE's Wind Exchange Ordinance Database (https://windexchange.energy.gov/policies-incentives), National Conference of State and Legislatures Wind Energy Siting (https://www.ncsl.org/research/energy/state-wind-energy-siting.aspx), and scholarly legal articles. The citations for each ordinance are included in the spreadsheet.
