Location: Flagstaff, AZ

If you have ever seen the television show "Extreme Makeover Home Edition," and you are into renewables, then you will really like an upcoming episode. The ABC program was in Flagstaff for a week in mid April and built a house for a family just north of Flagstaff. The house has 2 kW of solar and a 1 kW Grid tie Whisper wind turbine. The ABC program staff also spent a few hours in Southwest Windpower's factory. According to Southwest Windpower, they do not know how much of the technology will be featured in the actual program, but ABC program staff were very excited about the wind turbine. So, those in the U.S. and Canada or wherever ABC is aired, mark your calendars for Sunday, May 22nd. This is a 2-hour season conclusion. There is an expected 30 million people that will watch the program.
