Wind farms

The Electricity Commission of New South Wales and CSIRO's Centre for Environmental Mechanics are working to identify suitable sites for wind farms where wind-generated electricity could supplement power generated by conventional methods. Using rugged cup anemometers and vane instruments mounted on 30 metre high towers, to measure wind speeds at the same height as a typical three-bladed wind generator, they hope to assess the potential of wind-farm sites in New South Wales.
