Wind for Schools Locations

In Fall 2008 five Skystream 3.7 Wind Turbines were  installed through the Montana Wind for Schools program. One is located on MSU property near the Engineering complex, and  four additional turbines were installed at K-12 school sites around Montana.  A Live Turbine Monitoring page is on-line at MSU, and displays real-time turbine performance and links to archived data.

Six additional Skystream turbines were installed at K-12 schools during summer 2010.
