A&M home to largest vertical-axis wind turbine install

By: Barbara Vergetis Lundin |

Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi can officially say that it now operates the largest vertical-axis wind turbine installation of its kind in the United States.

To earn this distinction, the $1.2 million project uses three 75-feet tall, 20 kW vertical axis wind turbines which are the largest in the nation and will produce an estimated 217,946 kWh of electricity.

Funded by a $955,000 Distributed Renewable Energy Technology Stimulus Grant from the State Energy Conservation Office and the U.S. Department of Energy, the project is intended, in part, to create opportunities for learning, research, and innovation to apply engineering principles to real-world wind power generation.
