Components of a Wind Project

Although wind projects vary in scale, the same general components comprise any size project. The typical modern wind energy project consists of three major systems: wind turbines mounted on towers, an electrical collection system, and transmission/interconnection facilities. Most projects also include access roads, O&M facilities, and meteorological towers.
