Small wind energy workshop at Freedom Field Sept. 10
Is a small wind turbine the answer to reducing your electric bill? How do you know what size wind turbine is right for your house or business?
Methods to answer these questions and others will be presented at the Small Wind Options Workshop from 6:30 to 8 p.m., Monday, Sept. 10, at Freedom Field, 3333 Kishwaukee St., Rockford.
“There is not a single answer to these questions, but through simple engineering and economic analysis, we can provide individual perspectives,” said Jay Solomon, U of I Extension Energy and Environmental Stewardship Educator.
Whether you want to learn about the opportunities wind may present or are evaluating different systems, this workshop will have something for you.
Two different wind turbine systems are on-site at Freedom Field and will be available for viewing. Pre-registration is required by calling U of I Extension at (815) 986-4357 or online at http://web.extension.illinois.edu/jsw. Cost is $5 to attend.
