Second Wind has announced a new program to fuel the growth of community-scale wind power projects. The Community Wind Information Service uses wind measurement technology to provide comprehensive wind resource analyses to individuals and groups who are considering wind turbines on sites.

The service will enable community wind developers to decide quickly and cost-effectively whether the wind resource at their site will make their proposed wind power project economically viable. The process begins with Second Wind deploying a Triton Sonic Wind Profiler to conduct a wind measurement campaign. Second Wind then analyses the Triton data and other wind information sources to produce a Wind Information Report. The report includes detailed wind resource data, energy estimates, and capacity factors of turbines that the customer is considering. The Community Wind Information Service is available to municipalities, private landowners, engineering firms, or anyone developing community wind projects. It is cost-optimised for projects with small capital budgets involving low numbers of small turbines, 1 or 2MW. The assessment period can last anywhere from three to 12 months, and all service options are priced under US$ 50,000.
