Navy base salutes three new Skystream wind turbines

In our series “In Action," the opportunities and benefits of personal wind turbines are shared through customer testimonials and regional case studies.

The Joint Expeditionary Base at Little Creek-Fort Story, Va., has three new Skystream 3.7 personal wind turbines standing at attention on the base grounds.

The turbines, installed on Earth Day, are furthering the Navy’s goal of having 50 percent of installations with net zero energy consumption by 2020. Since 2003 the base has reduced its energy consumption by 20 percent.

Two of the turbines will supplement power to maintenance facilities associated with the base’s golf course, while the third will supplement power to the Naval Special Warfare training facility.
