NAU research powering wind energy growthTags: northern arizona university
[Source: AZ Daily Sun] - If you think it through, Arizona voters and taxpayers are largely responsible for launching the state's first large-scale wind farm.
They paid for the initial research that prompted interest from a major Spanish wind-farm developer.
A multimillion-dollar, large-scale wind farm being constructed between Holbrook and Heber relied on a wealth of wind data collected over a few years on rancher Bill Elkins' land.
That data collection was done with wind-measuring equipment on loan from Northern Arizona University, as one of several university programs funded by a voter-approved sales tax passed in 2000 to fund technological innovations.
