Wind Turbine School

OPB | Nov. 15, 2007 12:30 p.m.

We take you to a classroom three hundred feet in the air to learn all about wind turbines and what it takes to keep them spinning. As more and more wind turbines come on line in north central Oregon, Columbia Gorge Community College’s Renewable Energy Technology program is training the local workforce to meet the need for skilled technicians who can repair and maintain these technological marvels.

First Broadcast: 2007
Producer: Vince Patton
