Finding Smart Places

When we work to guide renewable energy development to the most appropriate places, we can avoid damaging sensitive wildlands and wildlife habitat.

At The Wilderness Society, we’re working to direct renewable energy projects to the most sensible lands. And we’re joined by other conservationists, sportsmen, elected officials, utility commissioners, energy companies and others who are united in calling for forward thinking policies.

Guiding Smart Development

We work to guide renewable energy development away from sensitive wildlands and wildlife habitat and onto lands that have already been used. These lands are close to cities and existing roads and transmission lines.

Incentives for Smart Development

We are working to help government agencies and land planners incentivize development of renewable energy, especially on already degraded lands.
