Energy Empowers interviews Andy Kruse, senior vice president of business development of Southwest Windpower.

Kruse explains how Southwest Windpower's joint venture with the Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) helped in the development of an early prototype of one of its small wind turbines; where its small wind turbine components are manufactured and assembled; where the small wind turbines are being used and by whom (for example, in schools to educate children on the basics of electricity); how much they reduce utility bills; and where the small wind industry is going over the next 20 years.

The full story from Energy Empowers is no longer available.
