Ahimsa applies for grant to put up a wind turbine
Bob recently submitted a grant application thru the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development to install a mini-wind turbine at Ahimsa Village. The turbine would be located on the hill between the house and the Straw cottage. We would install a Mariah vertical access wind turbine - http://www.mariahpower.com/overview.html. These are sold and installed locally by Envinity of State College. These turbines are inexpensive to purchase and install compared to traditional horizontal access turbines. They are also much quieter and will operate at low wind speeds. Updates on the grant will be posted here.
