BV Guides and Databases

Private Company Sales Transaction Databases
Free "Visitor Search" allows users to search the DealStats, BIZCOMPS, and FactSet/BVR databases for private company sales transaction data by SIC or NAICS Code using the following codes:
  SIC Code 4911 - Electric Services
  NAICS Code 221115 - Wind Electric Power Generation
Types of establishments included in these codes
Onshore wind power generation - establishments generating electricity using land-based turbines, with the location selection primarily based on wind speed and consistency, as well as the availability of land, environmental impact, and proximity to electrical grids.
Offshore wind power generation - establishments that generate electricity using turbines typically located in coastal waters along the continental shelf that capture the wind over open water where wind speeds are generally higher and more consistent than on land.
Utility-scale wind power operators - establishments operating large-scale installations of high-capacity turbines, typically rated in megawatts, that produce electricity on a scale sufficient for distribution through the wholesale market or directly to retail customers.
Non-utility-scale wind power operations - establishments operating smaller turbines for various applications, ranging from providing electricity to a single home, farm, or small business to being integrated into the electricity grid as a distributed energy resource.
Distributed or small wind power systems - establishments focused on operating turbines with a generating capacity that is typically under 100 kilowatts that are used to power a single home, farm, or small business and are not connected to the electric power grid.
Small community wind project operators - establishments managing small-scale energy projects designed to serve the needs of a community or rural area that generally have a total generating capacity ranging from a few kilowatts to a few hundred kilowatts.
Large community wind project operators - establishments managing larger-scale energy projects designed to serve the needs of a community or rural area that generally have a generating capacity ranging from several hundred kilowatts to several megawatts.
Wind farm developers - establishments responsible for the various aspects of developing wind farms, including site selection, land acquisition, planning and designing, permitting and regulatory compliance, securing debt financing, and construction and installation.
