The Washtenaw Wind Project was conducted to test the feasibility of developing wind power in Washtenaw County.
Data was collected from an 80 meter meteorological tower at Chrysler's Chelsea Proving Grounds from 2008 to 2009.
The Project was initiated as a resolution from the County Board of Commissioners to study the potential to develop wind and other renewable energy resources on April 15, 2006.
There are many people who have contributed time and effort to make the project possible. The primary project partners are Chrysler, LLC, The University of Michigan, The City of Ann Arbor, and Washtenaw County.
