  • Wind and Solar Power
    Brent Burkhart
    MUS 294
  • What They All About
    Use wind
    Require certain conditions
    Can be located in a variety of areas
    Wind farms can be made of many materials and integrated into many structures that already exist or can be the focal point of a new design
  • Off Shore Wind Farms
    The ocean is an ideal place for wind farms
    The largest is Thanet, located off the coast of the UK
  • Thanet
    Covers 13.5 square miles
    Produces on average 300 MW per year, enough to power roughly a quarter million homes
    The power is harnest by the ocean winds and transferred to land via underwater cables
    The whole project cost a little over one billion dollars
  • Horns Rev II
    Located off the coast of Denmark
    Produces 209 MW per year, or about 190,000 homes power
  • On-shore Wind Farms
    Easier and less expensive to construct
    Access for repair/upgrade regularly
    Can be located on passes and gorges or on costal lines
    Wind is not constant on land
    Wind can often change directions
    Roscoe Wind farm in Texas is the largest on-shore wind farm
  • Roscoe Wind Farm
    Covers 155 square miles
    627 turbines
    Total capacity to create 780 MW, almost three times as much as the largest off shore farm
  • Biglow Canyon Wind Farm
    Located near Portland, OR
    Contains 40 square miles of 217 turbines
    They can generate 450 MW
    The location was chosen because of the high wind volume that this area experiences from the Pacific Ocean
    This farm is set in a gorge and due to the incredibly steep walls winds average 10 mph
  • Biglow Continued
  • America and Wind Power
    Americas first off shore wind farm will be the Nantucket Sound.
    It will not only be a wind farm but also have a tourist side, allowing people to see how America creates and saves energy.
    This will be the first large boom in ecological tourism
  • Nantucket Sound
    State proposed wind farm design
  • What This Could Mean For Our Future
    Here is a clip from Richard Sullivan explaining what wind energy could do for his state and the rest of the country.
