CVEA’s wind turbine display is a Skystream 3.7 all inclusive distributed wind energy system. The controls and inverter are located in the nacelle. The unit begins generating electricity with average wind speeds of at least 10 mph, with the best results of more than 12 mph. The unit is mounted on a 70’ monopole structure mounted to a 10’x10’x4’ concrete foundation.
The wind turbine was decommissioned as of December 2014. Click here for an summary article of the results of the project.
