Landowners and farmers understand the importance and benefit of diversifying their activities. They know that in order to pay the bills, particularly in challenging economic times, they constantly have to look for ways to generate revenue from the land. With today’s technological advances, farmers can grow crops on the ground and generate power from the wind & the sun – all on the same piece of property.

Harvesting renewable energy can help save the family farm, thus keeping an area rural. wpd works with landowners to develop wind and solar projects in a win-win situation for all participants.
