John Brown University (Siloam Springs, AR) installs a Windspot on Campus for Student Study
Siloam Springs, AR--John Brown University erected a Windspot on campus to provide another level of hands-on experience for students studying renewable energy.
The 60-ft., 3.5 kilowatt capacity Windspot Turbine, will be tied directly to the Siloam Springs city grid to power trail lights around the university. The university's renewable energy faculty and students will conduct a one-year evaluation of the turbine production under the given wind conditions.
The wind turbine is installed on the west side of campus near the Engineering and Construction Management building site, currently under construction.
JBU's renewable energy degree includes courses in wind, solar and biomass energy, practical experience in designing, construction and monitoring renewable energy generators.
