- To determine the feasibility of wind-electric systems, six generation expansion alternatives were examined for Hart, Michigan--a city of 2,500 located near Lake Michigan where the average coastal wind velocities range from 5 to 7 m/s. Five of the alternatives included combinations of 500 and 1500 kW wind turbines (1975 GE parameters) and a 1 MW hydro plant while the last was a 3600 kW diesel generator. Wind velocity was estimated using data from U.S. Coast Guard stations along the shore and verified by a two-year measurement program. The Hart electrical system was represented by an hourly production cost program and the total cost calculations followed the ERDA/EPRI standard for solar energy evaluation.
