Since we seldom or do not get Real Time performance power output reporting from Turbine Owners or Wind Farm Owners I took it upon myself to create a Spreadsheet where with a few outside links as tool we can log the Wind Speeds of various sites.
I have initially created a TAB for the 6 New England States with hopes that other Wind Warriors across the nation will join in. -- At which point I will Duplicate the Master Sheet for that State.
This endeavor will require some reliable Volunteers that are not in the pockets of the Wind Industry. It does not require a Daily responsibility just a desire to take a quick sampling of as low as 1 turbine or farm or as many as desired. 14 locations took as little as 5 minutes of my time to log now that I have gotten used to what needs to be done once the Base Data has been completed. Once the base data is completed, it is a simple 4-5 step process.
■ Select The Location to monitor
■ Go to the linked Map(s)
■ View the Wind Speed provided and Enter the data in the Spreadsheet
■ Enter the Day of the week in the appropriate Column (Provided in Header)
■ At the End of the day Make the Day's Data a permanent part of the Record
■ At the End of the Week Make the Weekly Data Permanent.
■ The Weekly Data will be shown at the Bottom of the section as the Annual Recording to date.
■ Improvements Made (Wind Log II)
■ One sheet Data Collection
■ Record up to 24 Hourly records, auto-updated from data collection sheet.
■ Daily Log Updates Calendar Log automatic
■ Calendar Log Updates with New Recordings Automatically, providing updated info with new entries.
■ Updated Sampling Page to include links to Satellite imagery as available.
