Glenrock Wind Turbines
The Converse County, Wyoming School District #2 sought a solution to bring wind education to their elementary students by way of example. ThinkOne Energy Services worked with District personnel to properly site the turbine for maximum wind efficiency. 10kw and 5kw wind turbines were installed at this elementary school for education and energy savings, with the final design incorporating both vertical axis and horizontal axis machines, giving students opportunity to explore both mechanisms. Additionally, data and control panels provide real-time interface for student activities and learning opportunities. With the good area wind resources, this project provides energy offsets and lowers the carbon footprint of the school.
