The XZERES 110 is a 2.5 kilowatt (KW) wind turbine that will be placed on a 90-foot monopole tower that is capable of producing approximately 4,265 kilowatt-hours (kWh) annually.
That is enough energy to power two average classrooms for a year or a video game system for 25 years straight!
The Skyline School Wind Turbine Project was made possible by funding from the Northwest Environmental Defense Council, the Energy Trust of Oregon, the Bonneville Environmental Foundation and the Oregon Department of Energy Business Energy Tax Credit.
