Presentation Transcript


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

Some clues –

Unrealistic economics

The community hates it (or you)

No transmission

It’s a money pit

Lessons Learned


Major components

Scale

Wind resource

Capital costs (turbines + BOP)

Expected return

O&M (planned & unplanned)

Revenue

Unrealistic Economics


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%

Unrealistic Economics



Positive community relations is critical

It is the root of every permitting process

Is it not going well?

Deliverability standard

Energy/capacity

Curtailment

Interconnection vs. Transmission


Is your project a money pit?

Are you over budget?

Unforeseen expenses

Law suits
