The goal of the project was to perform a feasibility study to assess the potential for installing a wind power at a potential site at Worcester Academy. The methodology included a feasibility study of three wind turbines. This feasibility study included a series of investigations addressing wind data and energy, wind turbine selection, and financial feasibility. The wind study included estimation of amount of wind energy that could be generated, and the determination of the ideal site placement for the wind turbine. A financial projection was performed with consideration to a twenty year span in order to determine potential savings provided by a wind turbine. The overall conclusion was that there is potential for installation of a wind turbine to at Worcester Academy.
