Clipper Windpower Behind the Scenes

Posted in Uncategorized by j9stengel on June 18, 2009

The last 2 month my team and I, (Blake Lewis and Beatriz Barragan Horn) have been working on corporate video for our corporate video class. It has been a great learning experience. Earning money by producing videos for businesses is a great idea. We have contacted a company that is one of the only two producers of wind turbines in the USA  and also develops projects to build those turbines on. 

In a total of 22 interviews in 2 weeks and they all look great! We have learned so much about windpower and what requirements are needed to even start a project! 

Here some fun facts:

Wind energy is one of the few business who makes large investments in rural America. 

One Turbine 2.5 megawatts produces electricity to power about 800 homes. 

Currently less than 1% of the US power supply comes from wind.

Denmark and parts of Germany provide already more than 20% of the electricity from wind. 

One a turbine is finished mounted, it is as large as a football field. 

It requires 13 overload trucks to move all the parts of 1 turbine. 

 

It was truly an honor to work with a company who strives for a better future. I hope it was one of many. We might even do another project for Clipper Windpower in the near future.
