Note: This model by-law was designed to provide guidance to local governments seeking to develop their own siting rules for small wind turbines. While it was developed as part of a cooperative effort involving several state agencies, the model itself has no legal or regulatory authority. The Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources (DOER) and the Massachusetts Executive Office of Environmental Affairs (EOEEA) have issued a model by-law to help cities and towns establish reasonable standards for small wind-energy development. This model applies to stand-alone wind facilities up to 60 kilowatts (kW) in capacity. The model includes the following provisions:
|Incentive Type:||Solar/Wind Permitting Standards|
|Eligible Renewable/Other Technologies:||
|Organization:||Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources|
