NJ ANEMOMETER LOAN PROGRAM
  • Funded by NJCEP/NJBPU
  • Facilitate assessment of wind resources for
    residential, farm and commercial applications
  • NJ has one of most aggressive incentives for
    renewable energy in U.S.

3
NJ ANEMOMETER LOAN PROGRAM GOALS
  • Increase awareness and understandability of
    renewable energy potential
  • Purchase, test, install 30-meter mast outfitted
    with anemometers throughout southern NJ
  • Free wind analysis for 1 year to estimate wind
    turbine paybacks for customers

NRG TILT-UP MASTS CHARACTERISTICS
  • Steel tube with flared
  • sections
  • Guy lines in four
  • directions maintain
  • stability
  • No land disturbance
  • Commercial product
  • Similar masts are
  • currently being used
  • in Elmer and Salem, NJ

NRG TILT UP MAST INSTALLATION
  • Mast is tilted up from ground w/ gin pole and a
    small winch
  • Lifting of tower is done with set of guy wires
    attached to gin pole
  • Baseplate is hinged gin pole and tower can pivot
