Northern Power Systems offers administrative software to monitor their Northwind 100 Wind Turbine. Here is a website that shows the McGlynn Middle School’s turbine in Medford, MA.
A quote from the Northern Power Systems website says it best:
PublicView: Your Community’s Window Into Your Northwind 100 Turbine
The turbine is up and spinning, the ribbon cutting is over, and most of the news camera crews have gone home. But neighbors, residents, and customers are still calling, inquiring, and visiting the newest addition to their town. PublicView is a web-based tool that can provide answers to the questions people may have, such as:
- How much power is the Northwind 100 producing?
- How windy is it today?
- How much energy has the Northwind 100 made to date?
Your turbine will be the center of attention for at least the first few years of operation. Giving your neighbors a window into its operation and impact can encourage long-term support and a sense of community involvement in your wind project.
Good for ‘em!
