A new resource created for Colorado agricultural producers and rural dwellers eliminates guess-work for landowners interested in harnessing wind power. The resource video and booklet, entitled Colorado Wind Energy Installation Guide for Agriculture and Rural Applications, explains how to evaluate a site's wind energy potential, select the right wind turbine and tower combination, and install and commission a new wind system.
The guide serves as a "how-to" resource to help agricultural operators and rural landowners through the process of identifying and installing the most cost-effective system for their operation, beginning with the most important variable - determining the average wind speed at a site.
A video and booklet can be viewed online by clicking here. A hard copy of the booklet can be obtained from local conservation district offices or by contacting (720) 887-9944.
