Small Wind Incentives

In the U.S., the federal 30% investment tax credit is probably a key economic incentive for many projects. In addition you will need to know your State and local net metering policies, interconnection regulations, and additional potential incentives for small wind generators. Net metering is a term used to describe the regulated distributed power policies that allow you to receive credit for your total power production, and especially when you supply excess power to the grid. The Database of State Incentives for Renewable and Efficiency (DSIRE™) is a great place to start your investigation of net metering and other incentives.
