Abstract
There is a growing need for renewable energy sources in South Central Wisconsin, one that could be met by installing a wind farm in the area. We used a GIS to analyze a variety of criteria and determine the most suitable location for a wind farm in the nine county study area. Based on this research, we concluded that a location in Northwest Rock County is the best possible location to site a wind farm. This conclusion provides valuable base research for a company looking to take advantage of the growing market for renewable energy in South Central Wisconsin.
