Wind Power for Households

Project Survey Wind power is the use of air flow through wind turbines to mechanically power generators for electricity. Wind power, as an alternative to burning fossil fuels, is plentiful, renewable, widely distributed, clean, produces no greenhouse gas emissions during operation, and uses little land. Process of building and finishing Wind power gives variable power...

Remote Monitoring

Project Survey More than 60 percent of the U.S. offshore wind resource is located in areas with deep water, where the water is so deep that conventional foundations -- large steel piles or lattice structures fixed to the seabed -- are not practical. However, several U.S. companies are developing innovative floating offshore wind platforms for...

Brazilian renewables developer Renova Energia is facing a potential loss in revenue after regulators claimed ten wind farms were installed several weeks late. The company has queried an issuance by Brazil’s power sector authority Aneel which claims the sites were not officially ready to start exporting power until at least 26 days after a contractual...

Offshore Wind Energy

Wind Program funds research nationwide to develop and deploy offshore wind technologies that can capture wind resources off the coasts of the United States and convert that wind into electricity. The program is leading a portfolio of market analysis, technology development, and demonstration projects that will overcome key barriers to offshore wind development, including the relatively high…

Maintenance & Repair

If you went through the planning steps to evaluate whether a small wind electric system will work at your location, you will already have a general idea about: The amount of wind at your site The zoning requirements and covenants in your area The economics, payback, and incentives of installing a wind system at your site….
