Webinar: Wind Powering America – The Effects of Wind Energy Facilities on Surrounding Property Values in the U.S.
The Wind Powering America team hosts live webinars on a variety of themes on the third Wednesday of every month. The October webinar on the 16th at 3 p.m. ET features Ben Hoen, principal research associate in the Electricity Markets and Policy Group at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and lead author of the new report A Spatial Hedonic Analysis of the Effects of Wind Energy Facilities on Surrounding Property Values in the United States [PDF]. This report builds on a 2009 study that also investigated impacts on home values near wind facilities. As part of the new study, the researchers analyzed more than 50,000 home sales near 67 wind facilities in 27 counties across nine states. The research did not find any statistically identifiable impacts of wind facilities to nearby home property values.
The webinar is free.
