Exactly HOW Windy?

Fishbecks_anemometer_test

How windy must it be to generate enough electricity to power a house? We're testing to find out.

We're helping a client measure the prevailing wind at their property to determine if they have ideal conditions for generating power. Just because a location feels windy 24/7 doesn't mean it has the right kind of wind consistently sufficient to generate enough electricity to meet demand. The current VA wind map shows their location in Madison, VA is marginal.
 
So VA Master wind turbine installer Jeremy Hayes of Skyline Turbine erected an anemometer (try saying that 10 times fast, or even once!) to record for three months the wind speed, pressure and direction. The test will confirm wind power potential and provide data to calculate whether power needs can be met.

Stay tuned.
