university installs skystream 3.7
William Penn University recently installed a Skystream 3.7 grid tie wind power system to help produce clean electricity right on campus to help power the Musco Technology Center. The Skystream 3.7 is mounted on a tower that is 99 ft high, which is very high compared to most installations I’ve seen. The Skystream 3.7 in it’s first month of operation produced 352 kilowatt-hours (kWh) which equals to about $35 dollars in savings, seems quite low for a tower that’s 99 feet up, maybe their average wind speeds are quite last month?
The Skystream 3.7 was donated to William Penn University primarily for education purposes, what a great tool to help future generations learn about renewable energy, wouldn’t you agree? The wind power system blades are designed to operate quietly so the wind turbine itself is not going to be a distraction when classes are in session. I’m looking forward to following this wind turbine project to see how much electricity is generated over a course of a year. What do you think about the Skystream 3.7 at the Willam Penn University Campus?
