What is required for a wind project to be successful?

In general, a "successful" wind project is one that makes financial sense.

Five things are needed if your wind project is going to be successful. They can be remembered with the acronym CEWPI (pronounced Q-P):

  • for Community support, or at least not Community resistence,
  • E for minimal Environmental impact, meaning that the project isn't located in a wetland or an endangered species habitat, or close to an airport landing path, a cell tower, or residential buildings, etc.,
  • W for a good Wind resource,
  • P for a Purchaser of the electricity at a good rate (Note: if you will be using the electricity yourself, then you are the purchaser), and
  • I for an economical ability to Interconnect the project to the purchaser.
