The Zephyr Wind Turbine was made possible by generous contributions and grants, including a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy and the Minnesota Department of Commerce through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA). Thanks to all of the generous contributors who helped turn this dream into reality. We are proud to provide Mahtomedi Schools and the Mahtomedi area with a tangible symbol of our community’s commitment to renewable energy and education for a more sustainable future.
