Wind Energy

Wind Farm Development from Scratch

Site Identification

  • Our specialized team, which includes the Wind Resource Manager, Transmission Manager, and the Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Manager, among others, locate windy sites with available transmission.

Landowners

  • In our first communication with prospective landowners, we send a package that includes a variety of information about our company and a copy of our standard option and lease agreement.
  • PNE WIND USA organizes meetings with landowners to educate and inform the community about wind energy. This provides a forum to discuss the possibility of a wind farm and consider the options and leases.

Wind Analysis

  • We compare our readings with historical data in order to make long-term estimates of wind speeds and calculate expected energy production at the site using several parameters, including atmospheric pressure.
  • We measure the wind using meteorological towers in order to determine wind speed and direction.

Environmental Studies

  • Wildlife and environment are very important to us. In order to protect their safety we conduct studies such as bat, avian, wetlands and endangered species studies. The results of these studies help us to minimize environmental impact.

Transmission

  • We perform studies in collaboration with transmission operators to ensure interconnection without impacting the grid system. Further, we determine if upgrades to the system are necessary and calculate the costs.​

Power Market

  • We analyze the complex power market to determine possible energy buyers​

Construction

  • We complete the construction of small to mid-size wind farms in approximately four to eight months. During construction, we keep disturbance low and restore the land to its original state upon completion.

Operating the Wind Farm 25+ years

  • The wind farm is a long-term investment. The operator is managing the assets and production ensuring that equipment operates at peak efficiency. Covering less than two percent of the total project area, access roads and turbines occupy a minimal amount of space and allow agricultural and other land use for landowners.
