The Arkansas Energy Office and the Renewable Energy Department at John Brown University have partnered for a second year to continue the state's anemometer loan program. The program allows Arkansans – particularly landowners, farmers and rural businesses – to measure wind energy potential up to 110 feet in height.
The deadline to apply for consideration for the anemometer loan program is Aug. 15. Review of applications and site visits to qualified participants will occur in the fall. Installations are expected to be done in the latter part of the fall as the towers are decommissioned from their current locations.
Funding for the Arkansas Anemometer Loan Program comes from both the state of Arkansas and the Department of Energy's Wind Powering America Program.
