Abstract

The goal of this project was to create a guide for Massachusetts consumers who were in the market to purchase a wind turbine to place on their residential property. These turbines would either be rooftop or stand alone. The definition of residential property for all purposes of this project is approximately a quarter acre plot. The consumer guide would include an easy to use table that uses the average wind speed in the consumer’s location and diameter of the turbine to show the available power output for the consumer’s needs. The turbine would be required to comply with state and local zoning laws.
