WindPole Adds Towers To Wind Resource Assessment Portfolio


WindPole Ventures LLC has announced the addition of 1,536 towers to its portfolio for wind resource assessment. The towers span from Maine to Kansas, with a concentration of 720 in the Midwest Independent System Operator load-balancing area.

Towers range in height from 80 meters to 152 meters. This expansion results in over 7,000 Tier I towers, from which WindPole provides the flow of bankable data within 90 days of a customer's order. An additional 3,500 Tier II towers (available in 120 days) are also in WindPole's portfolio.

‘The tightening of project finance standards means that data from short 60-meter tilt-up towers may yield P-50 data,’ says WindPole founder and president, Steve Kropper. ‘Short-tower data results in less attractive financing terms, since projecting short-tower data has a wide dispersion and is considered more risky by investors.’
