Discussion

The Minnesota Division of Energy Resources published a Minnesota small wind case study that profiles the Mahtomedi Zephyr Wind Turbine, a 10-kilowatt turbine that generates power for the Mahtomedi High School stadium's lights and scoreboard and serves an even larger role as an educational tool for the community that worked together to make this project a reality.
