Land-based Wind Energy Guidelines: Tier 3 Case Study

The information in this document is an accompaniment to the case study presented in the second half of the first Land-based Wind Energy Guidelines training broadcast (broadcast #1). This information describes in more detail the bank of curtailment hours concept and how those hours may be applied from our real-world project example. Some of the material below is copied directly from the adaptive management section of the project’s Eagle Conservation Plan (ECP). It is important to keep in mind that the application of curtailment hours during the high-risk weather patterns are just one aspect of the project’s ECP and adaptive management plan.
