What is Wind Power?
  • Current wind power technology started about 25 years ago.
  • Early commercial turbines were small and unreliable. --40 to 100 cents/kwh
  • Typical current commercial Turbines
    • 675kW –1.5mW—3 to 5 cents/kwh
  • GE 3.6mW and Clipper 2.5mW
small wind power
Small Wind Power
  • Turbines 1kW to 25kW to 100kW
    • Tip up masts to permanent towers
    • Wyoming Net Metering Rule
      • 25kW LIMIT
      • ANNUAL TRUE-UP
community wind
Community Wind
  • Commercial-sized Wind Turbine Projects
    • 1 to several turbines
    • Support local power requirements
    • Generally, local ownership
commercial wind projects
Commercial Wind Projects
  • Many wind turbines 10-100
  • Larger turbines 500kW and larger
  • Generally, Utility or Producer-owned.
why is wind power important
WHY IS WIND POWER IMPORTANT?
  • PRODUCES ELECTRICITY WITHOUT GREENHOUSE GASES
  • PROVIDES LOCAL ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT ~ 14 JOBS PER 100MW
    • DOE SOFTWARE –JEDI

  • 288 mW
    • Arlington
    • Evanston
    • F.E. Warren
  • Wind development potential in WY
    • 5300 mW per WGA
wind measurements
Wind Measurements
  • Why is measuring the wind important?
  • Wind energy is proportional to Wind Speed cubed WE=K x WS3
  • Small differences in wind speed equal large differences in energy produced.

153 = 3375 183 = 5832

Need to know daily/seasonal variations
