Wind Test Center Coming To Western Kansas
KSCB News - September 20, 2010 12:00 am
Plans are being made to build a center in
western Kansas that will put small-scale wind turbines to the test.
The High Plains Small-Wind
Turbine Test Center will be located at the Northwest Kansas
Research and Extension Center just outside Colby.
Several groups are working together on the center, including
Hays-based Midwest Energy, Colby Community College and the Wind
Applications Center at Kansas State University.
The center will study residential and commercial scale turbines
that produce no more than 50 kilowatts of electricity. It will
offer something akin to a certification rating that can be used by
the companies that manufacture the turbines.
