Community Scale Wind with Northern Power Systems

Dates: 
09/30/2011 (All day)

 PLEASE NOTE THE DATE CHANGE. THIS WORKSHOP HAS BEEN MOVED FROM AUGUST 27 TO SEPTEMBER 30.

Please join Appalachian State University as well as Northern Power Systems for this one day workshop to be held at the Broyhill Conference Center, in Boone, NC. 

 

This workshop will cover the topic of Community Scale Wind Technology. You will learn about system components and design, life-span maintenance, economic benefits, as well as seeing the on-site NorthWind 100 Wind Generator, located at the Broyhill Conference Center. 

 

 

The turbine is a Northern Power Systems Northwind 100 wind generator and a result of the innovative partnership between the REI and New River Light and Power (NRLP); The REI allocated $319,800 and NRLP provided the remaining $213,200. The turbine is currently North Carolina's largest and is estimated to produce up to 147,000 kWh annually, off-setting 200 metric tons of carbon dioxide.

 

Community wind power is not defined by the size of the turbine or the source of the financing; it is all about producing power at the source of its need. This is what makes community wind one of the fastest-growing segments in the wind power industry today.

When you bring wind power to the source of a large energy need, and do it in a community setting, you are engaging in community wind power.

Northern Power Systems has over 30 years of experience developing and manufacturing advanced, innovative wind turbines. Headquarters located in Vermont, the company also holds offices around the globe. 

 

Cost: $100

Location: Broyhill Conference Center, Boone, NC
