Four Corners Wind Resource Center has published a short case study on the Coalition of Renewable Energy Landowner Associations that examines how they are organized and some of their successes.
By attracting wind energy developers to their region, CRELA and other Landowner Wind Energy Associations are bringing economic development to rural communities across the West. Wind energy development is producing additional income for landowners without disrupting their ranching or farming operations.
The Coalition of Renewable Energy Landowner Associations, or CRELA, was formed in 2009 by a group of landowners in northeast New Mexico to empower them to speak to policymakers and energy developers with one united voice.
