Building A Wind Turbine

Currently we have several wind energy publishing projects in the works—a TechBrief newsletter, a career guide, and an electromechanical textbook—so we’ve been doing a lot of research in this area. (Especially when we get the wind energy TechBrief done I’ll post a link to it as it will have the latest education & employment numbers.) Anyone who happens to be driving out in West Texas on I-20 will see both the ever-growing windfarms as well as the pieces of turbines being hauled down the highway on semis. When I met last week with Keith Plantier of the Texas Wind Energy Institute he mentioned that there were quite a few good videos on YouTube showing wind turbines. One of the best I found was this one, that documents the building of a wind turbine at St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota:
