NCRCRD Webinar: Presented by Eric Romich & Peggy Hall (The Ohio State University) and Wayne Beyea (MSUE) Large-scale wind farm development requires non-bias, factual-based information on both the positive and negative community impacts to guide conflict resolution and the evolution of community perceptions. Local elected officials and decision makers need access to research-based information that will help them better understand the potential benefits and impacts on their community.
Extension is uniquely positioned to help given its connection to university resources, its objective and unbiased research, and its commitment to transformational education. This webinar will provide an introduction to a 3-module curriculum developed with funding through the NCRCRD that addresses topics on project development, utility siting issues and concerns, and methods for resolving conflict involving wind farm projects.
