FAA REQUIREMENTS FOR TEMPORARY MARKING OF WIND TURBINES DURING CONSTRUCTION

To comply with current 2016 FAA recommendations for wind turbine construction, a company must:

  • Light wind turbines once they reach 200 feet during construction (submitting a Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) to justify not lighting the turbines is prohibited)
  • Use an FAA compliant L-810 light with a minimum intensity of 32.5 candela (cd)
  • Ensure temporary solar lighting systems have 7 days of autonomy at 32.5 cd
