Seattle, United States [RenewableEnergyWorld.com] 3TIER this week announced that Southwest Windpower and Better Generation will use 3TIER’s renewable energy information services platform to better educate customers on their on-site small wind energy potential.
Southwest Windpower turned to 3TIER to help its dealer network better educate customers on their on-site wind energy potential. Dealers will have access to various online tools that tap into 3TIER’s global wind resource dataset to instantly forecast location-specific energy production of Southwest Windpower’s Skystream 3.7 small wind turbine.
The integrated offering is made possible by 3TIER’s renewable energy information services platform, using both a Web interface and an application programming interface (API) to access 3TIER’s global wind dataset at different hub heights recommended for the Skystream turbine.
UK-based Better Generation will directly integrate 3TIER resource data into its Power Predictor product. Power Predictor is a device that enables residential and small business customers to collect on-site wind and solar data, and along with software, helps them select the best technology and products based on observed readings.
3TIER wind and solar resource data will be integrated directly into the software via 3TIER’s API, and the data will enable customers to benchmark their measurements against long-term resource data.
“Easy access to accurate and unbiased wind resource information is going to help propel continued growth in the small wind industry,” said Kenneth Westrick, founder and CEO of 3TIER, the global leader in renewable energy information services. “A small wind turbine is a significant investment, so it’s critically important to empower homeowners and small businesses with the information they need to make decisions with confidence. Only 3TIER can offer that anywhere in the world.”
