Abstract The public outreach and education efforts of the Wind Powering America (WPA) program are critical to meeting utility-scale wind build-out goals such as the Department of Energy's 20% Wind by 2030 scenario. WPA programs seek to improve citizens and policy makers understanding and perception of wind energy technology through outreach activities including workshops tailored to local government officials, farmers, land owners, and the public at-large. The key element of the WPA outreach strategy is to disseminate factual information, to spur discussion, and to answer questions about wind energy technology in advance of wind development proposals that might arise in a particular region. It is in this spirit that the Wind Powering America: The Next Steps in North Carolina project has worked to inform and educate stakeholders in North Carolina.
