katovikThe 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 analysis report of Kaktovik in November, 2013 that explored several project site and wind turbine options for North Slope Borough and the residents of Kaktovik to consider before the project moves into the design phase. The wind-diesel analysis was a component of a Hattenburg Dilley and Linnell wind project conceptual design report for North Slope Borough. The wind-diesel analysis concludes that the technical and economic prospects of wind power to supplement Kaktovik’s diesel power plant are excellent and development is highly recommended.
