My reactions:

(1) Use Michigan guideline of less than 300 kW.

(2) Use two different mutually exclusive scenarios in your questions: (a) individual machines, on-site, primarily for providing electricity to be used on site; versus (b) machines intended for making money through the sale of electricity... which covers utility scale applications and "wind farms".

Subject: LTU Wind Delphi: Two questions


RE: Lawrence Tech's Wind Energy Siting Delphi
Folks,

I need some help determining what would be the best definition for 'small' turbines for our Delphi Inquiry. Seems each state has defined small turbines differently.

California:      400 W - 100 KW
Michigan:       less than 300 KW
New York:       less than 250 KW
Oregon:            500 W - 10 KW

The reason this question could be important is that while I was researching the other states' guidelines, I discovered that there could potentially be 4 different scales of project.



* onsite residential/agricultural

* onsite industrial

* utility vendors with single turbine or distributed systems utility

* wind farms



Answers to questions about noise, setbacks, foundations, compatible land uses, etc. could potentially be very different for each of these project scales. Survey questions need to be clear about which scale of project they refer to. (Are the words 'large' and 'small' inadequate for our needs?)

Which leads to a second question. If our Delphi surveys becomes too large, we might have to focus our efforts on one or two of these project scales. How should we prioritize these four project scales?

-Daniel
