Abstract
  • If wind power is to become a viable energy alternative, a rapid and reliable cost effective methodology must be established, whereby large areas can be surveyed for windy sites and those sites can be evaluated. Based primarily on locating wind deformed vegetation, this paper establishes the feasibility of using air photo reconnaissance for the locating, analyzing, and preliminary site development of wind energy conversion systems (WECS). Regarding the long range concerns of any potential wind power site development, this paper also draws attention to the value of locating: (1) associated geographical features for siting, designing and construction, (2) certain people with local experience of wind and climate, and (3) potential land use development conflicts.
