California Energy Commission, March 1983
This report documents a jointly-sponsored field investigation of the wind energy potential of the Palm Springs- Whitewater Region for the Southern California Edison Company and the California Energy Commission. Presented is a comprehensive description of all field and related activities of the one-year study period (August 1987-July 1979); pertinent historical information; measured data; energy assessment results and wind energy conversation systems performance estimates. The report presents a framework in which data are analyzed in a manner suitable for policy and decision-making for wind energy systems in the PSWR. The study area covers the area from Beaumont, CA through the San Gorgonio Pass to the outskirts of Palm Springs.
