WIND TURBINE QUESTION

Asked May 20, 2013, 8:31 AM EDT

Hello. I was wondering if MSUE has any info on current programs or rebates available to area residents in the purchase of a wind turbine to help power my office. I know you previously had some speakers in to lecture about it and I am just now getting around to checking on it. Any leads would be most helpful.

You can contact your local electric supply company to see if they have any current or have plans for future grants of funding of renable energy programs. Several have had programs in the past but they normaly continue until they spend the funds allocated.
The other major source of funding has been the USDA Rural Development

Again these are allocacted funds so they take applications, rate them and allocate until funds are used. Not sure with all the budget cuts if they still have any funds but you can ask if and when they would have additional funds.

Hope this information helps
