How to Participate

Clean energy programs, utilities and other wind incentive providers are invited to participate in ITAC. Members of ITAC are authorized to use the ITAC list of wind turbines as the basis for incentive eligibility. In addition, members may participate in regular information-sharing calls and webinars, engage in the listserve, get feedback from peers on best program structures and policies, and access the rapidly growing library of wind turbine and manufacturer information. 

ITAC is a self-funded enterprise. As a result, members must contribute to the costs of administering the organization and engaging the services of the technical consultants that assist with wind turbine evaluation. ITAC has created three tiers of participation. Tiers 1 and 2 apply to state agency members. Tier 3 applies to utility members.
