Abstract

This Interactive Qualifying Project (IQP) assessed the feasibility of installing a small roof-mounted wind power system(s) on the Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) campus through wind data collection, survey assessment of community attitudes, the contact of manufacturers of potential wind power systems, and preparation of cost benefit analyses. A potential location for the wind power system(s) was selected, recommendations for an educational wind power system(s) and community involvement were made, and results were made available to the community.
