Abstract

This study assessed the feasibility of a wind farm in Southern New Hampshire. Four Vestas 225 V27 turbines were determined to be the most beneficial for the given site conditions based on energy potential, environmental impact, and needs of the community. The turbines were then placed, final cost was assessed, and final expected output of the turbines was determined based on real data.
