MSU College of Technology Wind Turbine
This 50kw wind turbine combines the best of technology with educational opportunities for MSU GF College of Technology students. The turbine is mechanically similar to larger scale wind turbines at a fraction of the cost, yet takes advantage of the specific wind conditions in Great Falls. The induction system produces 480VAC, 3 phase power and is expected to produce about 140,000kwh per year. ThinkOne Energy Services was able to design, permit and construct the facility to fit the local environment and the needs of the College of Technology. The Endurance E-3120 turbine sits atop a 120′ monopole tower and is a quiet performer, a perfect match for a college campus and nearby residential neighborhoods.
