Wind Anemometer Loan Program
Alaska Energy Authority
Anemometer Loan Program
The Anemometer Loan Program is aimed at communities with the potential for utility grade wind energy projects. This program supplies meteorological “met” towers, data logging equipment, and technical support to utilities and communities interested in wind power production. Wind resource potential is quantified by collecting wind speed and direction data, as well as temperature for air density calculations.  After a minimum of 0ne year of data is collected the program’s towers are then relocated to other communities.  Such onsite met data allows for more precise modeling and feasibility studies and is often required by potential project funding sources. Funding for this program is from the Denali Commission and USDOE.
