Second Wind, a Somerville, Mass.-based wind resource assessment company, has been ranked on Inc. magazine's first-ever list of the 5,000 fastest growing private companies in the U.S.

The company, which placed on the list based on its 27% revenue growth from 2003 to 2006, was the only business-to-business wind organization in the energy industry category, according to Second Wind.

"Second Wind's hardware and software have helped to lay the foundation for the growth of the wind energy industry, and we're thrilled that Inc. magazine recognizes our success," says Walter Sass, president of Second Wind. "With the recent introduction of our Triton product, which uses sonic chirps to measure the wind, we expect our company's growth to accelerate in years ahead."
