GEO Wind Monitoring Reports & Data Sets

Solon Erected Tower2_Resized

GEO currently maintains Ohio’s only public wind database for commercial and utility scale wind development. The majority of GEO’s wind data have been given to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) to verify Ohio’s wind resource maps. Based on increasing demand for these data, as well as GEO summary reports for the various wind assessment sites, GEO is now offering these data and/or reports (for sites listed below) for a nominal processing fee, as follows:

  • $100 per site, 3 sites for $250, or all 27 sites for $1,500 (this includes the raw data text files, final summary reports, and the site specification log detailing measurement heights, the logger channel number and boom azimuth in degrees). The data and documents will be sent to the user on a CD, or via e-mail if the size of files allows.
  • $25 for final summary reports only (no data files) in .pdf format. Reports will be e-mailed to the user.

These fees cover GEO’s administrative costs to manage the database, the time and materials required to process the request, and continue our ongoing efforts to provide educational outreach and increase wind energy development throughout the state of Ohio. If you are interested, download the Wind Data Request Form. The administration fee can be paid by check and mailed with the request form to GEO’s office at 7870 Olentangy River Rd., Suite 304, Columbus, OH 43235, or can be paid by credit card by calling the GEO office at (614) 985-6131.
