Begin with the selected location's wind analysis files which we offer for sale.
Choose a suitable power curve or input your own.
Add the following information:
1 The yearly cost of the wind generator (maintenance plus the installed cost divided by expected life)
2 How much can you sell your excess power for?
3 How much energy do you use at the site?
4 If you use energy at the site, how much does it cost to obtain energy during wind lulls?
5 If you have a local power storage system at the site, how many kWhr is it (i.e. batteries)?
6 If you have a local power storage system what is its yearly cost?
7 If you have a local power storage system what is the ratio of kWhr In to kWhr Out?
And WindMapperPro Answers with:
1 The Historic Capacity Factor. (actual output divided by rated output).
2 The Net yearly Profit / Cost of the site.
3 The Net yearly savings for a mini-grid scenario using wind power vs other (likely diesel generators).
4 The sweet spot wind speed for the wind generator where most of the power is generated.
5 The average percent difference in Capacity Factor on a year to year basis.
6 The percent of the time that the wind generator was idle.
7 The most likely wind directions at the site.
8 Having the ability to determine the size of the energy storage system you should install (batteries).
9 Having the ability to see the affect of significantly raising the wind generators height above ground.
10 Viewing the energy output on a daily basis for the whole period.
11 Viewing the state of charge in the storage system on a daily basis for the whole period.

Do you have an interest in the bottom line numbers of how much power can be obtained from some new hi-tech wind generator at a particular location, and how much money will it cost to do this?
WindMapperPro is a program that helps you predict these numbers.
