This site is provided by the Cascade County Commission for residents and wind developers. We use our Geographic Information Service Mapping department to help landowners and developers learn about our rich wind resource. You can zoom into maps of specific Cascade County locations that are enhanced with digital layers containing roads, topography, power lines, property ownership records and wind potential. This tool has become the centerpiece of Cascade County’s Wind Marketing Program.

You can explore Cascade County’s GIS maps by clicking on the GIS button above.

We hope you find this site useful. We welcome your comments. Let us know what you’re thinking about Wind energy by signing our guestbook at the Contact us link. We are committed to pursuing energy that will keep our Big Sky blue and bring new industry into our communities to improve our economy.
