What values can I get with API?

You can get eleven common wind statistics for you location including; Weibull A and k, elevation, air density, air temperature, energy, shear exponent, wind rose, wind speed, predominant direction and energy based on a turbine model. All values are average annual values. Wind speed, wind rose, and predominant direction values can be provided as monthly averages.

How are the energy numbers calculated?

Our reports are generated using a long term hourly data set. Based on the turbine you have selected the dashboard adjusts the power curve based on the air density of the site and then calculates the energy produced at each hour.

Do I have to compare three turbines in an advance report; what if I am interested in only one?

You are able to select any number of turbines up to three. In instances where only one turbine is chosen, the data reported will only be for the one chosen and the table will be formatted accordingly.
