Abstract

The objective of this IQP was to facilitate the eventual construction of a wind turbine at Holy Name High School. A feasibility study based upon the economic and social issues surrounding such a project will be presented, including documentation of the additional steps taken by the group regarding conferences, meetings and presentations to help secure a wind turbine for Holy Name. Our results conclude that it would be feasible for Holy Name to erect a 600 kW turbine on site.
