How Can Small-Scale Wind and Solar Producers Optimize Their Energy Development Decisions?
The Distributed Wind Energy Association (DWEA) will be presenting a day-long workshop on distributed generation in Yuma CO, with a focus on northeast Colorado’s clean energy future. HOMER Energy VP of Sales, Dominick Morone, will be presenting “It’s All About the Economics.” The talk will highlight specific opportunities that HOMER Pro presents for the farmers, agricultural producers and small scale commercial energy producers who are likely to attend the conference.
What might be the optimal combination of a small-scale wind development integrated with storage and possibly solar? Potential developers will get a glimpse of how HOMER Pro can model capital and operating expenses and provide insights into the most economically viable combinations of energy resources for a given project. The intended audience for the workshop also includes members of rural cooperatives and utilities, state and local policy makers, cleantech industry members, major developers, corporate purchasers, and other interested parties.
Time: Monday, December 4, 9:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. MST
Location: Yuma Community Center, 421 E 2nd Ave, Yuma, CO 80759
Cost: $15-$25 to attend. Cost includes lunch and a networking reception.
Space is limited and registration is required
This workshop is the second in DWEA’s “State of the State” initiative which is bringing community workshops aimed at increasing exposure to market opportunities in distributed generation to key states. Colorado is a leader in distributed generation installations, ranking eighth nationally for distributed wind and eleventh for solar capacity. Poised to grow dramatically over the next few years, distributed wind provides unique opportunities for farmers, businesses, homeowners, and communities to control their energy costs and create local economic benefits by producing their own renewable energy.

About the Distributed Wind Energy Association
The Distributed Wind Energy Association is a collaborative group comprised of manufacturers, distributors, project developers, dealers, installers, and advocates, whose primary mission is to promote and foster all aspects of the American distributed wind energy industry. Distributed wind, commonly referred to as small and community wind, is the use of typically smaller wind turbines at homes, farms, businesses, and public facilities to off-set all or a portion of on-site energy consumption. DWEA represents members from all sectors with relevant interests pertaining to the distributed wind industry. For more information on DWEA, please go to www.distributedwind.org.
