Wind Power

Wind power

Wind Powered Turbines are mechanical devices which turns wind into electrical power.  It uses the force of wind to propel the turbine to create electricity.

 At the Outreach Center, this 3,000 watt, 48 volt direct current wind turbine system is also featured with a controller, dump load device, an inverter, and a battery bank.  This low wind drag system is designed to begin blade rotation at ~6 miles per hour.  

 In areas of sustained wind patterns, wind energy can be a viable solution towards green energy and reducing dependency of the grid.
