LIVEWIRE | JULY 2016 | PAGE 3 Is that a Ferris wheel?


The answer is no, it’s not a Ferris wheel. Although it does look like one and that may be because it is very similar to one. Except the design is in reverse so it will generate electricity rather than use it.


The photo at right shows the experimental wind turbine in mid- -XQH ZLWK LWV ÀYH EODGHV LQVWDOOHG 7KH GHYHORSHU %DUEHU:LQG Turbines, estimates the project will start testing in early July. This is the only prototype BarberWind Turbines has, it has previously been erected and upgraded in Colorado. It is expected to generate nearly one megawatt of power once operational. According to BarberWind Turbines, which is based in South Carolina, some of the advantages of this design are: • Cost Effective. The revolutionary design eliminates the nacelle and gearbox so the turbine is less expensive to purchase, install and maintain.


• More Productive. 7KLV HOHJDQW GHVLJQ KDV ÀYH OLJKWZHLJKW blades supported by a rim so it captures a greater percentage of available wind and delivers higher annual output of electricity.


• More Transportable. The lightweight yet robust turbine ÀWV LQWR ÀYH VWDQGDUG VHPL WUDLOHUV RU VL[

containers so it can be installed in locations previously deemed inaccessible.


• Environmentally Friendly. Our graceful turbine turns more slowly so it creates less noise and, from a distance, disappears into the landscape.


The wind turbine combined with the one megawatt solar array and two megawatt diesel generator will combine to form a Progressive Resource Energy Park through TCEC’s partnership with Smart Energy Source and Oklahoma State University’s National Energy Solutions Institute (NESI). The Hooker site will be used as a remote learning laboratory.


“We are pleased to be a part of advancing sustainability through this Progressive Resource Energy Park,” said TCEC CEO Zac Perkins.
