• Why Wind?

    An ambitious wind energy agenda, on land and offshore, is vital to meeting the Commonwealth's goals for a clean environment and a robust economy.
  • Wind Energy: Facts

    From potential energy generated, to the amount of carbon dioxide offset, to health concerns, this Q&A addresses important questions about wind energy.
  • Commonwealth Wind

    The Massachusetts Clean Energy Center's (MassCEC) Commonwealth Wind program offers incentives for commercial, community and micro wind projects that meet specified qualifications.
  • Distributed Generation (DG) and Interconnection

    If you install new technology or a system, such as solar panels, a wind turbine or CHP, to generate electricity on your site, there are resources to help you understand the process and connect to your energy provider.
  • Locating Wind Sites - Resources

    Choosing the right location for wind projects is a key factor to their success. Learn about potential sites through tools and resources, including the Massachusetts Geographic Information System Wind Viewer and findings from a study on wind energy potential on state-owned lands.
  • Massachusetts Wind Working Group

    Administered by the University of Massachusetts Amherst Wind Energy Center (WEC), this group is open to anyone who supports its mission, which aims to promote smart and successful wind energy development in Massachusetts, in addition to other goals.
  • Offshore Wind

    Massachusetts is working to enable the development of wind energy projects from its abundant offshore winds.
  • Wind Energy Model Zoning By-Law

    Use our updated wind bylaw for assistance in establishing standards for wind power development.
  • Wind Energy Projects

    Some communities are already benefitting from clean energy produced by wind turbines. Learn about wind projects in Massachusetts.
  • Investigation into Best Practices for Wind Energy Siting

    Welcome to the Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities’ homepage for the development of best practices for the siting of land-based wind energy facilities and our current investigation into this matter.
