Title: Distributed Wind Deployment: Dairy Farm

Abstract

This is case study on distributed wind. Located on the plains in rural Colorado, this family farm uses a distributed wind system to offset electricity used by energy-intensive dairy farming. Their site is ideal for distributed wind development because there are minimal obstacles to block the prevailing winds coming from the west. (Buildings shown are to the east and south, not the dominant wind direction.) The turbines were interconnected on long distribution lines and grid infrastructure upgrades were completed as part of the project.
