And the tower comes down
Here's a sequence of shots of our project today, which made me quite tired so I don't plan to write much. But this is our 60m NRG TallTower wind assessment system coming down after having done its job at the local high school for the last year.
A lot of roughnecking for a lively crew of Unity College students and community members.
Present were students Kiera, Cody, Paul, Jennifer, and community members Steve and Joe.
We now have all the data we need to help the high school decide whether or not a medium-large scale turbine (likely a reconditioned Vestas) will pay.
Thanks to NRG, but especially Phil Pouech and Wellie Cobden for all the good training and the equipment.
We now have several students interested in learning the wind assessment business.
