Abstract:

This program investigated the potential of the Mt. Washington, New Hampshire area for generating electric power from wind energy as an alternative to fossil fuels. The U.S. Naval Shipyard at Portsmouth, New Hampshire is among those facilities which could benefit initially from successful wind generated power. IIT Research Institute IITRI specialists performed the following tasks 1 Evaluation of New Hampshires wind energy resources for potential electric power generation using meteorological, topographical, biological and other available information, 2 Assessment of the environmental, social, technical, and other possible barriers to the development of wind energy resources, and 3 Economic evaluation of installing one or more wind turbine-generators to supply power either directly to the Shipyard or to lines of the Public Service Company of New Hampshire which supplies the Shipyard.
