Wind study results and site selection

Posted by Sarthak Prasad on September 28, 2005

Navigant Consulting Inc completed the feasibility study for the wind energy project.

Main points from the Navigant Consulting Inc's wind study:

  • The study found no fatal flaws that would exclude the entire South Farms area from the installation of one or more wind turbine-generators.
  • Site D was identified as the best-fit location, located along Philo Road south of Curtis Road and north of Church Road.
  • Power costs are estimated to be in the range of 3.5 cents/kWh to 6.2 cents/kWh (third party contributions can significantly lower these values).
