dc.description.abstract <p>The deployment of additional wind energy capacity in Iowa will yield discernible short-term and longer-term economic impacts for Iowa. The short-term and temporary economic gains are from <ul> <li>the annual purchases and deliveries of Iowa-supplied wind energy generating equipment like blades, towers, nacelles and other critical components, and</li> <li>all construction-related activity associated with erecting and making operational wind energy arrays</li> </ul></p> <p>The long-term and permanent gains to the Iowa economy are driven by <ul> <li>the on-going increments to statewide productivity associated with the operation and maintenance of the built wind energy systems, and</li> <li>the incremental increase in lease payments made to landowners for siting the wind energy structures</li> </ul></p> <p>This study projects the annual economic impact outcomes to be expected from four development scenarios over an investment and deployment horizon of 15 years.</p>
