WindPole sells actual hub height wind resource data that solves two problems: 1) historical wind data that de-risks and improves finance terms for wind power development projects, and 2) real-time data based wind forecasting that improves operational effectiveness for utilities, grid operators, wind farm operators, and power traders.
WindPole installs weather monitoring sensors and systems on existing narrow faced, 80+ meters (hub height), broadcast towers. Each tower is polled every five minutes to compile real-time wind resource data. WindPoleâ€™s clients include five of the top ten wind developers, grid operators, and industry analysts.
