Project Development

Prospecting for new wind projects. Evaluating potential projects. Developing economically viable projects. Creating, enhancing and maintaining important relationships.

Whether prospecting for sites, evaluating a potential project, providing critical engineering services, or managing construction, EcoEnergy understands wind energy development every step of the way. We also recognize the importance of building important relationships with our host communities. Our project development stages reveal the capabilities that our staff brings to each of our projects…and yours.

Prospecting for Sites

  • Identifying a convergence of the key elements of a wind farm: wind resource, land, transmission access, and construction suitability
  • Assessing the site using our in-house analytical tool, EcoProspector
  • Modeling and analyzng the wind energy production potential
  • Creating a detailed project plan and budget
  • Developing GIS mapping of the project area

Evaluating the Resource and Developing the Project

  • Deploying and maintaining a meteorological tower
  • Modeling a turbine array to optimize the net capacity factor
  • Utilizing agreements for leases and easements that offer a high degree of protection for both the landowners and our development partners
  • Building extensive mapping to intelligently design a productive system while protecting cultural, infrastructure, and environmental resources
  • Conducting biological and geotechnical studies
  • Designing preliminary transmission line and substation layouts
  • Initiating and carrying forward permitting applications
  • Transacting the Power Purchase Agreements with utility providers

Reaching Out to the Community

  • Hosting public information meetings
  • Publishing project newsletters
  • Building relationships with local organizations
  • Supporting local economic development programs
