Renewable Energy Developers vs. Local Communities


Why Can't We All Get Along?
Our friends over at TriplePundit has an interesting piece about why renewable energy developers must first win community support.

It might seem harder to have to involve communities, but in the long run, it will probably avoid many problems (though on the other hand, local communities should learn to control the NIMBY reflex and only refuse truly bad projects).
