 Open House to “kick the tires” of a vertical wind turbine.

Saturday November 3, 2012 from 1PM to 3PM there is an open house at the Diemand Farm, located at 126 Mormon Hollow Rd, Wendell, MA.  The open house will showcase a new vertical 5KW wind turbine that blends into the surroundings, is silent and has no flicker. It was installed this summer to offset electrical use by the farm and now is fully operational.  The turbine will demonstrate the ability to generate electricity in low wind environments that traditional horizontal turbines cannot. The turbine sits 35 ft in the air, unnoticed by neighbors. Since the turbine doesn’t create any vibration it is also perfect for installations on flat roofed building. The Diemand farm store will be open and representatives will be on hand to answer any questions.
