The Telecommunications Industry Association has agreed to investigate design structures for small wind turbines with the intent to participate in the development of a new standard based on its work in developing and maintaining it for steel antenna towers.

 

Members of TIA TR-14.7, which maintains the industry standard for the structural design of steel antenna towers and supporting structures, has unanimously agreed to form a technical task group to investigate structural design issues for small wind turbines.

 

The task group will focus on researching and formulating recommendations to address the technical aspects of the design and maintenance of structures supporting small wind generators based upon the approaches outlined in the existing communications tower standard TIA-222-G.
