Wind data and geography are not the only factors that determine the location of a wind turbine. Equipment access to the installation site, and utilities are also key factors. At the same time consideration must be given to the location of nearby structures and other obstructions that can interrupt air flow. Local ordinances can determine equipment setbacks as well.

Course Learning Outcomes:
  1. Understand the safety requirements both in the design and application of a wind system.
  2. Install wind energy systems in accordance with local and national codes.
  3. Calculate system and component size based on environmental conditions.
  4. Demonstrate the proper use and operation of a wind energy system.
  5. Demonstrate the proper care and maintenance of the wind energy system components.
