Westwood brings a unique perspective to siting wind turbines. Our wind resource team and engineers work together to optimize project sites for energy production and constructability. As an integrated team of wind resource, engineering, land surveying, and environmental specialists, we develop solutions that help deliver the lowest cost of energy for your project.
Desktop and Field Micrositing
Through our collaborative team approach, wind projects realize cost savings and maximized energy yields. By combining the expertise of wind resource, engineering, and environmental design teams, we optimize turbine layouts for any development stage, minimize rework, and help manage constructability issues and setback compliance.
Energy Production Estimates
Ensure project competitiveness by comparing multiple layout scenarios for finance modeling. Eliminate costly updates to bankable energy reports using our P50, time series output, and wind resource map products.

Maximize profit and minimize risk for project lenders and equity participants. Budget and invest wisely by assessing and ranking multiple development opportunities against one another. Mitigate risk by characterizing known constraints and technical attributes such as relative power production.
Measurement Campaign Planning
Field services and wind resource experts help achieve low wind speed uncertainty with minimal cost and time impact to the project. Westwood can assist with the selection of optimal measurement locations, physical deployment of met towers, or remote sensing technology to reduce health and safety risks and improve knowledge of the wind regime at hub height.
