Units are expected to work without incident in winds from one to 250 mph, have a relatively silent operation, avoid bird strikes, be structurally/seismically safe to operate and be camouflaged to blend into the environment. Units will be separated from camp traffic with a temporary safety fence. Also installed will be battery storage and inverter.
