Default Ohio Dealership Wind Turbines

Just read an atricle in todays Columbus Dispatch about Byers Automotive in Dublin and Delaware added a Wind Turbine to the lot to help produce power.

The Dublin turbine can produce up to 100 kilowatts.

The Delaware turbine will produce an estimated 25,000 kilowatts.

The projects annual electricity production of 150,000 kilowatt-hours. That would be enough to provide for the annual needs of 15 households based on the Ohio's average usage.

For the dealership, which uses much more power than a house, the turbine will typically provide 15 percent to 50 percent of the electricity needed at a time, depending on the time of day and how strong the wind is blowing.

That is pretty cool and it's definitely generates some good P.R.

There have been some dealers who have added roof-top solar panels to their dealerships in California and Arizona and they've benefited from some positive stories from their local media.

I think it's a smart move, especially when it's so highly subsidized.
