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 Electric Cooperative, the utility serving Saint Michael, intends to construct a distribution intertie in summer 2014 that will connect Saint Michael to Stebbins.  Stebbins will host the primary powerplant and Saint Michael will have a backup powerplant.  With this in mind, it was decided to located wind turbines at a site nearer Stebbins (see Stebbins for more information).
