Kaktovik

The wind resource measured in Kaktovik is outstanding at wind power class 5 (on a scale of 1 to 7). In addition to high average wind speeds and high wind power density, low turbulence and highly direction winds were noted, all of which are desirable for wind power development. V3 Energy LLC wrote a wind-diesel […]

Stebbins

The Stebbins wind project site, located on the plateau about one mile north of the village, has an outstanding Class 6 wind resource with a mean annual wind speed of 7.1 m/s (at 30 meters), low extreme wind probability and low turbulence. Alaska Village Electric Cooperative is upgrading the power system of Stebbins with a […]

Kake

A 34 meter NRG Systems, Inc. tubular-type meteorological (met) tower was located on a high headland on the northwest side of Kupreanof Island approximately 7.7 km (4.8 miles) straight-line distance northwest of the village of Kake, but 19 km (12 miles) by road.  Kupreanof Island hosts extensive forestry operations and compared to the original virgin […]

Emmonak

Alaska Village Electric Cooperative (AVEC) constructed a wind power project in the village of Emmonak in 2010 that is comprised of six Northwind 100 B model turbines for 600 kW of installed wind turbine capacity, an electrical intertie to the nearby village of Alakanuk, and a control system to integrate the turbines to the existing […]

Saint Michael

The wind resource measured at the Saint Michael met tower site 0021 is very good with measured wind power class 5 (excellent).  In addition to high average wind speeds and high wind power density, the site experiences very low turbulence and low extreme wind speed probability, resulting in an IEC Class III-c classification.  Alaska Village […]

Mountain Village

The wind resource measured at the Mountain Village met tower site is very good with measured wind power class 5 (excellent).  In addition to high average wind speeds and high wind power density, the site experiences very low turbulence and low extreme wind speed probability.  Its location on a high exposed plateau above the Yukon […]

Deering

The wind resource measured in Deering is good at high wind power Class 3 with low turbulence conditions. Met tower placement was based on observations of wind patterns in Deering, the relatively high elevation of the site, and proximity to existing roads. The site is thought to have the best developable wind regime near Deering. […]

Buckland

Buckland has very expensive fuel, a well-run powerplant ideally suited for integration of wind turbines, and a strong desire to incorporate wind power to reduce their energy costs. In summer 2015, after ten years of study and planning, two Northern Power Systems 100 wind turbines were installed. Two wind studies were conducted in Buckland, one […]

Point Lay

The wind resource measured in Point Lay is excellent, with measured wind power high class 4 to low class 5 (on a scale of 1 to 7). In addition to high average wind speeds and high wind power density, Point Lay’s winds are highly directional and of low turbulence, all of which are highly desirable […]
