It cannot be overstated: proper due diligence in the early stages of a wind project can help avoid costly mistakes and disappointment down the road.
We have been a strong proponent
of wind energy for many years.
We designed our first wind farm in 1981 and have since grown to be recognized as a national leader in the Wind Energy sector.
We have provided wind engineering and consulting services on more than 30,000 MW of wind farm development throughout North America, South America, and Europe.
Our clients depend on us for everything from permitting and site acquisition, to design, construction, and power distribution and management. EAPC provides workable solutions for projects of all sizes.
EAPC completed the sale of a wind turbine to Lake Region State College at a site near the campus in Devils Lake, ND.
The turbine is a General Electric model GE 1.6-82.5, which is a utility-scale wind turbine with a nameplate generating capacity of 1.6 megawatts. The turbine is approximately 400 feet tall with a tower that is 265 feet tall and blades that are 135 feet long. The turbine supplies wind-generated electricity to the College as well as serving as a teaching platform for their wind technician training program. The turbine is now fully operational.

These errors can rob owners and operators of time and money.
While many developers put time and consideration into new project siting, permitting, turbine selection, and financing, transmission is sometimes an afterthought. However, transmission considerations are just as important as finding the right project site.
