Wind Development in Pennsylvania: A Reflection on State Policy

  • Sarah Banas Mills

Abstract

While other states have continued to add wind turbines in recent years, there has been no new wind development in Pennsylvania since 2012. This article considers how state energy policy as well as local land-­use policies related to wind energy compare with other states as a way to understand how these policies may be impacting wind development in the Keystone State, especially in light of the geographical characteristics of the state’s highest quality winds.
