Demonstration Wind Turbine Project
April 21, 2007
Calvin engineering students raised a 1.8 kilowatt Southwest Windpower Skystream 3.7 purchased from Earth Solar Group. The demonstration turbine could generate up to two kilowatts of power, an amount Calvin engineering professor Matt Heun says could run lights and computers in Calvin's Bunker Interpretive Center, while also having a big impact in terms of educational value.
