Southern Winds Summary Project Report 2007- A Study of Wind Power Generation Potential Off the Georgia Coast

Source/Sponsor: 
Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech), Strategic Energy Institute (SEI); Southern Company
Creator/Author: 
Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech), Strategic Energy Institute (SEI); Southern Company
Description: 

The study examined a variety of factors - including technological, environmental, regulatory, and economic considerations - associated with potential sites off the coast of Georgia. The study identified Jekyll Island and Tybee Island as two locations with the best potential. Of the two locations, Tybee Island was deemed to be better suited because of reduced visual disturbance, improved wind resources, and closer proximity to industrial and maintenance resources.

Report of the Governor's Scientific Advisory Panel on Offshore Energy

Source/Sponsor: 
Governor Beverly Perdue
Creator/Author: 
Governor's Scientific Advisory Panel on Offshore Energy
Description: 

The report found that substantial areas of at least 506 federal lease blocks have a wind-capacity factor of commercially attractive
(>30 percent) to outstanding (>40 percent) in which no serious conflicts with wildlife, existing human uses, or natural factors that would inhibit successful installment of wind turbines have been identified. These could accomodate as much as 50,000 MW of nameplate capacity, generating a yearly average of 20,000 MW of power.
