ElimElim has a marginal to moderate wind resource for wind power development, depending on the project site – the met tower location or possibly the dominating hill west of the airport – but the new Northern Power Systems NPS100C-24 wind turbine is expressly designed for lower wind class environments and modeling results predict the potential for unexpectedly high energy production. Site options for wind turbines are limited in Elim and given the low wind resource at the met tower site, the hill west of the airport is the only viable nearby site option, but development of the hill site may require an additional met tower study, FAA permitting, and consideration of project capital costs.
