A web-based analytical tool is available from a manufacturer of small wind power systems (2.5 kW to 100 kW). XZERES Wind Corporation’s WindRx offers a comprehensive site assessment and financial review to quickly assist potential customers who are considering purchasing a wind turbine from the company. The tool integrates wind resource data, energy production data based on specific site characteristics, government incentives (state and federal), and financing options to generate a detailed economic return profile for customers. It has the capability to perform “what if scenarios” that tailors to most customers’ situations. WindRx can generate a report that shows key decision parameters such as out of pocket cost, payback period, and net savings over the life of the equipment. The report will also provide a detailed review of yearly cash flows, site specific information, monthly energy production of the wind turbine system, and return on investment (NPV, IRR).
WindRx asks important questions needed to make sustainable energy choices. Does wind make economic sense for a particular site location? What does it cost? What federal and state incentives are available? Does the site location have the right wind resource? What does a feed-in tariff mean? How much energy will it give me and at what cost? Is wind energy a smart investment for me? WindRx(TM) makes small wind energy information more easily accessible. Additionally, as a web-based tool, an XZERES certified seller will have this tool in the field, at any time with internet access.
