Wind Shear

Measure of the change in wind speed with altitude increase. At higher altitude the average wind speed is higher.

Taller Towers for More Powerful Generators

The rotor blade clearance above the ground increases as the tower height increases. The maximum power capacity of the generator increases as the square of the rotor blade length. The total electricity generated increases due to generator maximum capacity and wind speed, BOTH. The UltraTallâ„¢ Tower enables much larger generators to be put on land based towers at much higher altitudes. The UltraTallâ„¢ Tower means more electricity can be produced at lower cost for consumers and better profits for wind generator owners.
