Commercial Wind Farms
Commercial Wind Power
Most wind commercial production turbines are designed to use wind blowing from 9 to 65 mph. However, because wind speed varies, the annual power production is typically about one-third of the full turbine generating capacity. For this reason, good site selection and turbine choice are critical to a commercial wind projects success.

June 2007, published by the Farmers' Legal Action Group, Inc. (FLAG) fron Saint Paul Minnesota.
"This book serves as a guide to the many legal issues faced by farmers and rural landowners who seek to develop wind energy projects. The Farmers' Guide to Wind Energy: Legal Issues in Farming the Wind provides legal information for individuals developing wind projects, regardless of size. This includes farmer-owned large utility-scale wind farms as well as smaller on-farm or residential wind turbine projects. Legal issues covered in this guide include negotiating wind property agreements, siting a wind farm, liability risks associated with developing and operating wind turbines, project financing, choice of business structure, government incentives for wind development, and the tax consequences of these efforts."
