Wind Turbine Installation
The Bergey wind turbine is being installed today by Ben Rodgers and Leondard Allen of Solera. They worked through a bit of a snow storm to get things up and operational. It has been painful watching day after day of wind go by without the wind turbine installed. For more information on the solar power and wind turbine systems contact Solwera at .
