Albemarle RC&D, through their REES grant from the Rural Center, has installed another Met Tower in the region - this time in Camden County.
The 60 m met tower at the Camden spray field is collecting and transmitting wind data. Alpha Energy will process the data and make it available on the Internet. The 60 m tower will provide key data for evaluating wind energy at the Camden Eco-Industrial Park and the Alpha Energy reps agreed that the spray field may be a good location for a community-scale wind turbine, probably 100,000 kw or 225,000 kw. They will use the met tower data to show how much energy could be produced with these sizes of turbines.
