CEC Wind Atlas 1985

Information found here was based on the California Energy Commission report, CEC Wind Atlas, April 1985. Most of the windspeed data was collected at <10m above ground level. The complete  CEC Wind Atlas  and its underlying reports can be found at the CEC's main library at 1516 9th St, Sacramento, CA 95814, (916) 654-4292.

Rio Vista Wind Energy Project Final Data Report

Prepared for SMUD by SECOR, May 2005

This report summarizes and documents operation of the doppler miniSODAR lower boundary layer wind monitoring system installed and operated at the Sacramento Municipal Utilities District (SMUD) Montezuma Hills Station. It also summarizes the data collected at the station during the period of May 29 through June 28 of 2004. The goal of this project was to investigate the wind speed shear exponent (shear) at various heights above the ground level (AGL) and the relation of those calculations to engineering construction options including turbine hub height and blade selection.

Wind Energy Prospecting in Alameda and Solano Counties

Earl Davis and Ron Nierenberg, Pacific Gas and Electric Company, California Energy Commission, May 1980

The Pacific Gas and Electric Company and the California Energy Commission conducted a wind energy prospecting program in Northern California. Eight candidate areas were initially considered and qualitatively evaluated; two ares in the San Francisco Bay Area were selected for study. a total of 23 sites were instrumented at the 30-ft level. Data were collected and analyzed for the ten-month period of March through December 1979.
