VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) - Five small turbines spinning at the Washington State University Vancouver campus produce little electricity - about enough for a house - but they're a valuable tool for wind farm research and engineering education.
Associate Professor Stephen Solovitz says they give students real experience in renewable energy.
The Columbian reports (http://bit.ly/1k9kzGh ) teams of students this semester are designing and fabricating wind turbine blades to improve efficiency.
