Abstract

This report outlines an extensive study done at Worcester Polytechnic Institute about the feasibility of a wind farm in Worcester County, MA. Technical aspects, potential locations, social implications, environmental impacts, political support and economic impacts are each comprehensively examined to determine whether a wind farm would be a possibility for this area. The report is concluded in a discussion on the tipping point of wind power both in Worcester and in the U.S.
