Interior Releases First National Interactive Map of Onshore Wind Turbines

USGS Scientific Tool to Aid Landscape-Level Planning, Responsible Renewable Energy Development, Support Climate Action Plan

Assistant Secretary for Water and Science Anne Castle joined the U.S. Geological Survey to release the first publicly available interactive map and geo-dataset showing more than 47,000 onshore wind turbine locations and related information across the entire United States to move the economy toward clean energy sources, reduce carbon pollution and create jobs. 


“In making this critical information available to the public, the USGS has provided public agencies and private companies with a new tool to help guide smart landscape-level planning decisions that support domestic energy production while minimizing conflicts,” reportedly said Secretary Jewell. “The data will help improve the siting of future wind energy projects as well as aid land managers in devising more up-to-date land-use and multiple-use plans.”
