Turbine requirements – wind viability:
Review these articles and note the wind viability for Indiana as compared to the wind power class industrial turbines need for power generation.

From the Institute for Energy Research:
“However, sufficient wind for economically generated power is not always available. For example, according to the Energy Information Administration, relatively few areas in the eastern half of the United States are rated as having “class six” winds—15.7 mph at a height of 33 feet—or “superb” for wind power generation.” (See corresponding US map.)

Testimonials:
