The wind resource measured in Point Lay is very good, measured at high wind power class 4 to low wind power class 5 (on a scale of 1 to 7). In addition to high average wind speeds and wind power density, Point Lay experiences highly directional prevailing winds and low turbulence.
V3 Energy LLC prepared a feasibility study for Point Lay in December 2011. The study concludes that the technical and economic prospects of wind power to supplement the diesel power plant are excellent. Two candidate sites were considered, one near the airport and another on the bluff immediately north of the village, and two wind turbine options, the 100 kW Northwind 100 and the larger 225 kW Aeronautica AW29-225.
