Puerto Rico Wind Resource Assessment Phase I Grant uri icon


  • A $32,465 project sponsored by the Puerto Rico Energy Affairs Administration to increase the knowledge of wind resources in Puerto Rico. We assessed wind velocity probabilities at sites that may be used to install wind farms. The criteria to select the prospective sites was not convenience of data gathering, such as existing towers or existing wind recording stations, but land availability for establishment of a wind farm, road access, available electric grid connections, zoning regulations and indicators of potential wind resource such as existing wind data, topography, wind-deformed vegetation or eolian landforms.
