Abstract

The project provided Dismas House, a non-profit organization in Worcester, a feasibility study to determine the financial and social benefit of wind power. There was insufficient information to warrant a wind power project. Interviews, site based research, and financial analysis informed this conclusion. The project reviewed funding opportunities, analyzed wind, and compared turbine models. Recommendations are to survey wind for a year with an onsite anemometer, and to retain a professional to secure funding.
