Museum of Science wind lab
BOSTON--The Museum of Science in Boston shared data Tuesday for an experiment it's conducting on small wind turbines. Five turbines have been operating on the museum's roof for the past several months, three of which you can see here.
The bottom line on the return on investment is that this location does not have enough wind to make the turbines economical, according to the museum. However, the wind turbines are gathering data for a wind lab and an educational exhibit in the museum. And wind professionals from the area, and even around the country, are interested in the museum's experience with the different technologies and permitting processes.
