Empresa de Servicios Publicos de Heredia (ESPH) in Costa Rica wants to develop a wind farm to complement hydropower generation. We explored the feasibility of building a wind farm at a site in Guanacaste for ESPH by determining potential energy output, feasible turbine placement, construction feasibility, financial feasibility and the social and environmental impacts. We proposed a design with a twelve-megawatt wind farm with a payback period of five years as the most cost-effective and efficient.
