Abstract:     
This article proposes the drafting and adoption of a Uniform Act for Wind Rights. A uniform act is beneficial for several reasons. First, as a practical matter, adopting a rights regime toward the beginning of an industry’s growth is easier than imposing a regime mid-stream. Second, the adoption of a rights regime by state legislatures avoids the slow and varied assignment of rights through the courts. Finally, a uniform act serves the purpose of providing legal consistency between states, thereby lowering the costs of wind energy development.
