Wind Turbine Tour
Have you ever wanted to see one of those monster wind turbines up close? Now is your opportunity of a lifetime. This May 7th, PRC members and friends are invited to a fascinating tour of the wind turbine on the grounds of the Cuyahoga Fairgrounds.
Our tour will start at the Sustainability Center which has interactive exhibits on wind and solar energy, a construction video of the entire process, a live turbine data screen and a motorized nacelle. Feel free to ask any technical questions. We will also take a look at our solar tracker which powers a pump in a cistern/ fountain on the West side of the bldg. Those who wish to go out to the turbine may walk out with me to the machine and check out the inside of the tower.
You can read more on their web site, www.cuyfair.com. While there go to the Renewable Energy Center, where you’ll find tons of info on their wind turbine project.
The tour is open to all members, family and friends. However, it’s absolutely important that you let us know how many will be in your party. Please confirm as soon as possible and no later than April 30th. Write us at firstname.lastname@example.org
IMPORTANT: The tour meets at 6pm. You must enter the Fairgrounds from the Bagley Road main entrance.
You’ll note that this is a regular meeting night for us at Busch Community room. The regular meeting has been cancelled. Instead, we’ll see you at the Fairgrounds.
