Participants in this online course will learn how to perform a site assessment for a small wind system. The course will cover how to evaluate a site’s wind energy potential, determine wind speeds at proposed heights, make a load profile for a client’s energy needs, determine appropriate tower heights, and estimate kWh output for a system based upon wind resources.
To receive a MREA Wind Site Assessor Certificate you will need to perform two practice site
assessments, pass a written test, and pay a $50 exam fee.
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
Approximate the load to be met with wind energy
Identify and recommend system placement options
Recommend appropriate tower heights and types
Quantify the wind resource at recommended hub heights
Size a wind system to meet a home or business owner’s electric energy goals
Provide equipment vendor information
Provide a general cost estimate
Know what to include in a wind site assessment report
