It's quiet, it's efficient, it shouldn't wear out and it even collapses for easier access if it needs to be looked at.  They flipped the switch on the UMD farm's new wind turbine on Earth Day, and Mindy Granley, UMD's Sustainability Director, says the project could be one of those win/win/win partnerships for the turbine's manufacturer, Windtech; UMD and UMD students in a variety of disciplines.

UMD's Alison Hoxie is a professor of Renewable Energy Systems at UMD and she talks about UMD's small wind turbine project.
