Is your project doomed (and you don’t know it)?

Some clues –

Unrealistic economics

The community hates it (or you)

No transmission

Lessons Learned


Presented by daniel e dubois

Major components

Scale

Wind resource

Capital costs (turbines + BOP)

Expected return

O&M (planned & unplanned)

Revenue

Unrealistic Economics


Presented by daniel e dubois

Create some practical guidelines

Example – (assumptions)

Scale = 50MW (land – 100 acres /WTG)

Wind = 7 m/s (30% NCF)

Installed costs = $2,000 / MW installed

O&M = $50-70k/WTG

Projected return 9% IRR

Revenue = $80/mWh escalated at 2%
