Distributed Wind Site Analysis Tool

The Distributed Wind Site Analysis Tool allows users to input location and terrain information about a potential wind system site in the United States and predict the energy output and environmental benefits of that site. The tool is designed to help potential wind energy system consumers choose the most effective site for their wind energy project.

Distributed Wind Policy Comparison Tool

A Web-based Distributed Wind Policy Comparison Tool and Guidebook helps utilities and policymakers advance the market for on-site wind generation across the nation. The Web tool's financial model measures the impact of various policy combinations on distributed wind turbine project economics and can be used to rank the "best and worst" state markets for returns on investment for various project scenarios.
