Abstract

Wind Law is a relatively new subject area specialization here in the United States, and around the world. The State of Oklahoma, is the second windiest place in the United States, after Texas. This essay brings into light how the wind business regulated in Oklahoma, by attempts to look at the short comings of the newly amended "Oklahoma Wind Energy Development Act." We attempts here to delve into questions the Act has no answers for.

This essay also looks at causes of actions, defenses, and remedies that may arise in the use of Wind Turbine business, from both the plaintiffs' and defendants' views; we deal with the questions on "setbacks," the distances set between the wind turbine and other human habitable facilities like homes, schools, airports, and hospitals. The wind turbine interference of airports' equipment (radars) and what the next generation of radars and wind turbines will do, have been explained here.

While this essay may be of interest to those studying Wind Law, wind developers and researchers, town and zoning planners, renewable energy enthusiasts, will equally be of interest in this discussion.
