Term Definition
Height

Permitting regulations in this category refer to the maximum total height of a wind turbine allowed. Current wind turbine designs are the result of many years of research and development in establishing the ideal height of the tower and blade lengths in order to most efficiently capture the wind resource. Counties may chose to regulate in this category for a variety of reasons, including public safety or aesthetics.

Hertz (Hz)

A standard unit of measurement: its units are 1/seconds. Typically used in the electricity industry to describe how many times an electrical signal repeats itself over the course of one second. Example: The electricity in the United States has a frequency of 60 Hz. This means that the signal of the U.S Electric System repeats itself 60 times per second.

Hub Height

The height of the tower where a wind energy conversion system is mounted measuring from the ground.
