The Wind Program works to increase the deployment of utility-scale wind technologies like those deployed at the Maple Ridge Wind Farm in Lewis County, New York.

The U.S. Department of Energy's Wind Program leads the nation's efforts to improve the performance, lower the costs, and accelerate the deployment of wind power technologies.
