Carmen, Oklahoma, a small town of approximately 400 people, is working at being the greenest little town in the state. Thanks to wind power.
With a total of five turbines installed, the town will be one of the first proto-types of its kind, becoming self sufficient through the production of its own energy.
So far three Endurance S-343 turbines have been installed, with two more turbines on the way. The turbines will power the city office, park, library, and water wells. The first three turbines were installed in the town's unique, 100 year-old park. The remaining turbines will be installed at the town's water wells.
It is expected that each of the city park turbines, as well as one of the water well turbines, will supply 14,000 to 18,000 kilowatt hours of electricity each year.
'It is an absolute pleasure to be involved with this project. The milestone that is being set in Carmen, Oklahoma is a fantastic example of what can be done in a town that enthusiastically takes the social and environmental responsibility of their own electrical energy supply into their own hands,' said Monty Taylor, Wind Specialist, P&K Wind Energy. Monty has been working with the town for over a year to bring this project to fruition.
'This is an excellent customer affirmation of the value of the Endurance wind turbines. The adoption of wind power is spreading across a number of market verticals and applications. The pioneering spirit at Carmen Oklahoma will surely help the widespread adoption of this excellent alternative energy source across the entire United States,' said Glenn Johnson, CEO, Endurance Wind Power.
The residents of Carmen are expecting the turbines to put their town on the map and serve as a point of interest to potential tourists. However, tourists are not the only ones to be excited about these turbines. In order to demonstrate their commitment to this new energy process, the town residents were able to sign the blades of these turbines before they were installed for operation.
