Pilot site for the development of alternative energy sources is selected village Novikovo Korsakov. There are already conducted project work in the near future to establish vetroizmeritelny complex. This mast height of 34 m, equipped with sensors measuring the speed, wind direction and temperature. Before proceeding to the construction of a wind turbine, the experts during the year will be watching wind potential areas. Only then can we judge the feasibility of the project.
