The Distributed Wind Energy Association (DWEA) is a collaborative group comprised of manufacturers, distributors, project developers, dealers, installers, and advocates, whose primary mission is to promote and foster all aspects of the American distributed wind energy industry. Distributed wind, commonly referred to as small and community wind, is the use of typically smaller wind turbines at homes, farms, businesses, and public facilities to off-set all or a portion of on-site energy consumption.

Dive into the fundamentals of harnessing wind power on a decentralized scale. Distributed wind involves the deployment of one or a limited number of wind turbines in various settings such as homes, farms, businesses, and public facilities. These turbines serve the dual purpose of offsetting on-site energy consumption or forming small arrays strategically located near loads, a concept known as front-of-meter installations. Join us as we explore the essentials of this innovative approach to wind energy utilization.
