DWEA member benefits range from a continuous Federal presence in Washington, DC that advocates for an extension of the Investment Tax Credit, increased support from the Department of Energy, and increased funding for the Rural Energy for America Program, among many other initiatives. Membership dues also contribute to a State Policy program that targets opportunities in key states to protect, create, or expand existing programs for distributed and community wind.

Other benefits to membership include: networking with industry leaders, discounted registration to both DWEA and partner events, receive current market strategy and development updates, free webinars, and support for common industry barriers such as permitting and zoning, and access to best practice documents and industry reports.
