WindApp is a practical mobile app for wind energy enthusiasts and professionals that can estimate your energy and monetary savings for a specific wind turbine based on your local wind resource.
Features such as built in mapping with your GPS location and the ability to add a customized wind PDF gives users the ability to account for local terrain and wind distributions. Default average wind speeds from the NASA database use a Rayleigh wind distribution.
Wind turbines listed from manufacturers who are members of the WindApp community also have direct links available to their websites for more information. Manufacturers can provide very detailed information on the turbine specifications as well as costs and whether they are certified or not.
Electric rate data is based on the US EIA database however users may choose to input a specific rate themselves. Federal rebates and/or incentives discount are automatically applied, if available, and users can add state/provincial rebates and separate values if desired.
WindApp also includes a listing of available wind turbine installers and their phone, website and email if they are WindApp members. Manufacturers and installers can have their information updated at anytime and these updates are automatically uploaded to all the app users, without the need to for the user to update the app itself.

Ratings and Reviews
WindApp is great!
This is the most useful app for evaluating your wind energy capability. Not only does it estimate your wind for any location, it enables you to select from available turbines and calculates your annual energy and cost savings, including payback time. I recommend it to anyone interested in wind energy! Plus you can store multiple profiles and learn s lot since every page has an info button.
