Most concerns center around large wind farms. I think it will be easier
for participants to focus on just one size and that should be large wind
energy systems......John

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
