Alternative project gains wind


Seniors in Ryan Reed’s engineering class at Sylvania Northview High School designed and developed plans to bring wind energy to Sylvania through the help of a BP grant. The students welded the gridwork, which is the foundation for the wind turbine, in November 2009. The final elements of the turbine will be installed in the spring. The students will then be able to compare the differences between wind and solar power (through existing solar panels).
