About Us: 

Windustry has provided high quality wind energy information to varied audiences of farmers, rural landowners, elected officials, utility representatives, community planners, farm management educators, and bankers since the mid-1990s. Windustry was originally developed as a project of the nonprofit Sustainable Resources Center based in Minneapolis, funded by the Legislative Commission on Minnesota Resources for two bienniums. In 1999 Windustry began a transition to broaden its scope and expand its target audience beyond the state of Minnesota. Windustry is now a nonprofit, 501(c)3 organization partnered with the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy (IATP), another nonprofit organization that promotes resilient family farms, rural communities and ecosystems around the world through research and education, science and technology, and advocacy.

Dedication to Community: 
The Community Wind Handbook was developed by Windustry on behalf of the Rural Minnesota Energy Board and published December 15, 2006 by a partnership of the Agriculture Utilization Research Institute, the Southwest Initiative Foundation, The Minnesota Project, Clean Energy Resource Teams, and the Minnesota Corn Research and Promotion Council.
