The Distributed Wind Energy Association (DWEA) has named Haley Estes Roberto, vice president at Harvest the Wind Network, to its board of directors. Roberto was selected to replace outgoing board member Jenny Heinzen and will serve a one-year term.

In addition to Roberto, the DWEA board welcomed three additional industry leaders – Dave Blittersdorf, Dan Juhl and Heather Rhoads-Weaver – who were re-elected last fall for the 2013 calendar year.

The DWEA board serves as a unified voice for the distributed wind industry, from manufacturers to installers. DWEA provides leadership and guidance to all members on federal, state and local policy, and is expanding its membership base through development of programs and business opportunities.
