Sales Tax Exemption for Wind-Energy Conversion Systems

Wind-energy conversion systems used as electric-power sources are exempt from Minnesota’s sales tax. Materials used to manufacture, install, construct, repair or replace wind-energy systems also are exempt from the state sales tax. A "wind energy conversion system" (WECS) is defined as any device, such as a wind charger, wind mill or wind turbine, that converts wind energy to a form of usable energy.
