"Certification Type" designates to which Standard(s) the applicant is pursuing SWCC certification: AWEA 9.1-2009 (AWEA).


"AWEA Rated Annual Energy" is the calculated total energy that would be produced during a one-year period with an average wind speed of 5 m/s (11.2 mph)


"AWEA Rated Sound Level" is the sound pressure level (dBA) not exceeded by the wind turbine 95% of the time at a distance of 60 meters from the rotor with an average wind speed of 5 m/s (11.2 mph).


"AWEA Rated Power" is the wind turbine’s power output at 11 m/s (24.6 mph). Manufacturers may still describe or name their wind turbine models using a nominal power (e.g. 5 kW S-343).


"Peak Power" is the highest point on the certified power curve.


"Limited Power Performance Certification" indicates that SWCC has granted this certification as defined in Section F6 of the SWCC Certification Policy.
