3TIER Group, a Seattle-based provider of wind assessment services, has released Firstlook Standard reports for smaller-scale wind power developers to complement Firstlook's original Professional reports. Priced at $1,000, a Standard report includes annual, monthly and hourly information on wind speed, power distribution, wind and power directions, and diurnal variations.

"From ease of use to rapid turnaround, Firstlook's advanced, online wind assessment capabilities have received extremely positive response from our customers," says Brian Reidy, executive vice president of market development for 3TIER. "We’ve clearly got a breakthrough product and we want to make it even more affordable so people can shorten their development cycles. Whether they have a 50 MW or 2 MW project, Firstlook will be able to meet their needs for a tenth the price of a traditional wind assessment."
