Massachusetts-based Boreal Renewable Energy Development is doing some site assessment to help bring wind power to New Yorkers this year. The site is being considered for a rooftop turbine installation that will contribute to they city’s energy needs and add a powerful symbol to its skyline.
On behalf of partner Williams Building Company, a construction firm based in South Yarmouth, Mass., Boreal is assessing wind speed and direction for possible turbine placement on the roof of the Veterans Affairs Medical Center. The assessment will also help determine the optimal location for the turbines. Boreal is using one of Second Wind’s Nomad 2 Wind Resource Data Loggers to collect the wind data and analyze the potential for energy production at the VA Medical Center. Sensors situated on rooftops between the 19th and 23rd floors measure wind speed and direction, and the data logger compiles and stores the data.
