Albany-based AWS Truewind announced the launch of a web-based small wind prospecting and siting application Small windExplorer. This state-of-the-art application was developed on behalf of the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) to provide statewide wind resource information to the small wind community.
The small wind market is becoming increasingly reliant upon map-based wind resource estimates to site residential and light commercial projects. The Small windExplorer was designed to be a user friendly, all inclusive solution for NYSERDA to provide their constituents with detailed and accurate wind resource information to facilitate responsible small wind development. The Small windExplorer provides free access to site-specific and highly accurate wind resource maps and reports to determine site viability.
“We are confident that the maps and data available through Small windExplorer will lead to a larger pool of successful projects where performance expectations are routinely met,” said Marie Schnitzer, Manager of Government and Solar Programs at AWS Truewind.
