Wind Turbine Feasibility
Needham's Recycling and Transfer Station (RTS) is an ideal site for renewable energy generation. Given the site's elevation and clearance above nearby topography, it is a good possible site for wind power generation. We have also begun exploring a solar photovoltaic installation which could co-exist with an installed wind turbine.
A key initial step toward that goal is a wind feasibility study.The study does wind measurements at a possible turbine site over a period of months. The data collected is then used to estimate the amount of electricity that can be generated. That estimate is used in building the business case for construction and operation of a wind turbine.
