MSU Billings to Receive Wind Turbine

Construction is set to begin this Friday at 10:30am on a new vertical axis wind turbine at the Montana State University Billings College of Technology. This wind turbine is not the typical type with large propellers. Instead, it has rectangular panels that rotate around a vertical center pole. This is expected to be finished by Thanksgiving, and in January MSU Billings College of Technology is starting a new sustainable-energy technology program. Students in this program will get hands-on experience with the new wind turbine as well as studying other solar, wind and alternate energy technologies.
