3TIER, a provider of energy forecast products, has released its Firstlook Assessment, a Web-based tool that provides a wind and power resource assessment.

"Firstlook does exactly what its name says: It provides an initial look at potential wind sites for customers, but at $2,500, it is a tenth the price of a traditional wind assessment," says Kenneth Westrick, 3TIER's founder and chief executive officer. "In just minutes, Firstlook produces a complete wind assessment report, delivered in PDF format directly to the customer over the Internet."

Firstlook is accessible 24 hours a day and includes analysis from the company's advanced numerical weather prediction modeling technology, 3TIER says. For more information on the tool, visit www.3tiergroup.com
