UMPI windmill ‘a great decision’ | Bangor Daily News

[In high school I played in a baseball playoff game hosted at the university baseball field near where this turbine was built. If that day was any indication of what the wind is like there normally, the windmill was put in just the right place. It was so windy that day that we could barely hit the ball out of the infield. More universities – more communities, more hospitals, more government buildings should consider wind power, solar power, and other alternative energy sources. – KM]

Live data on the turbine can be found at www.umpi.edu/wind; click on “Live Turbine Data.”

  1. If everyone simply took a common box fan and put magnets into it, placed it on the roof of their home, then we could all save tons. I know, because my old box fan is charging batteries that light up my home for free.
