PRLog - July 13, 2010 - RALEIGH, N.C. -- RALEIGH, N.C. - Baker Renewable Energy is pleased to announce the completion of a Skystream 3.7 wind turbine installation in conjunction with the North Carolina Solar Center at North Carolina State University (NCSU).  

The new small wind system, located at the North Carolina Solar Center’s Test and Training facility adjacent to NCSU’s McKimmon Center, has a rated capacity of 2.4 kW and includes remote monitoring of system performance. A wind turbine system of this size should offset up to half of a typical home’s electricity usage each month.

The N.C. Solar Center is renowned for its renewable energy technical assistance and training, technical research, demonstration projects and its policy research and analysis related to solar photovoltaics, solar thermal, wind and biomass.  The Center serves as a clearinghouse for renewable training and information, not only for the State of North Carolina, but also beyond and particularly through its website database at  www.dsireusa.org.  

The Southwest Windpower Skystream 3.7 wind turbine installed by Baker Renewable Energy is mounted on a 45 foot, tilt-up, segmented monopole tower, and the NC Solar Center staff will use it to improve wind training capacity and research.

“We believe this wind turbine will be an important demonstration tool, aiding in the real-world training of installation and service ‘best practices’ in a safe and controlled environment,” said Jason Epstein, Department Head of Baker Renewable Energy.
