Virginia University Emerges as a Leader in Renewable Energy Education JMU recently installed a 7.5kW Bergey wind turbine on a 120-foot-tall tower as part of its Small Wind Training and Testing Facility, an educational initiative launched by the Virginia Center for Wind Energy (VCWE). The system is capable of producing 10,000-12,000kWh of energy a year when operating at average annual wind speeds of 5 m/s, which is enough to power an average-sized house for a year.
“We are very proud to have been a part of the project team here at JMU,” Epstein said. “In addition to providing continuous, clean energy and reducing utility costs, the turbine will also offer a hands-on educational opportunity for students who are interested in the renewable energy field, further supporting the industry in Virginia.”
