In reading this press release from the Department of Energy & Climate Change and Department for Communities and Local Government for the United Kingdom, it causes me to wonder if we have similar schemes (as the British say)? Do the residents near onshore wind farms in the U.S. get to determine where the turbines will be located in relation to the scenic view, local heritage and the natural landscape? Do homeowners receive a reduction in their utility bills? Maybe this type of community engagement will spread across the pond and we will see more of this mutual benefit sharing here in America. The following is from Gov.UK.
