Metadata Updated: July 25, 2023

A machine readable collection of documented wind siting ordinances at the state and local (e.g., county, township) level throughout the United States. The data were compiled from several sources including, DOE's Wind Exchange Ordinance Database (Linked in the submission), National Conference of State and Legislatures Wind Energy Siting (also linked in the submission), and scholarly legal articles. The citations for each ordinance are included in the spreadsheet.

This data is an updated to a previously developed database of wind ordinances found in OEDI Submission 1932: "U.S. Wind Siting Regulation and Zoning Ordinances"
