Wind Energy
Small wind energy systems provide clean and renewable energy to supplement or provide your household consumption. Wind energy systems can ber very cost effective if you have a good wind resource at your home, and can also be a great way to take your system off the grid completely. Not all sites are appropriate for wind energy and there may be some cities or counties that restrict their use, but it may be worth your while to research the potential for your site, especially if you have a good wind energy resource. Small wind energy systems are anywhere from 500 W up to 100 kW in power. Small wind energy systems are also great for powering remote locations, ranches, cabins, pumps, boats, rvs or other sites that do not have easy access to utility lines. Read on for more information about small wind energy systems.

2013 UPDATE: Harnessing renewable energy in Park City will be a little easier on the pocketbook in 2013. The City Council has agreed to waive up to $1,000 in building and inspection fees for solar photovoltaic (PV), solar thermal, and wind energy projects completed in 2013. The fee waiver is available for residential and commercial projects. For larger projects, the first $1,000 in fees would also be eligible for the fee waiver.  Click here for contact info for the Park City Building Department.

Note: the 2013 fee waiver applies to projects completed within Park City Municipal limits (see map).  For other local projects that are outside of City Limits, see Summit County's website for info on the permitting process.
