Watch live data from a Minnesota wind turbine!

The Park Rapids Wind Project has a fun gagdet on their website that allows you to get the most recent live data from the 20kW tubrine installed near the Century school. You can also look at data from the past month, year and lifetime of the turbine. This particular project has only been in operation since May of 2008 but it's still fun to be able to look at live energy output from the turbine.

The project is currently taking donations (all tax-deductible) and one nice option on the website is the Contribution Calculator. There you can enter a donation amount and see what that equals in terms of energy saved for the school and how many pounds of greenhouse gases won't be released into the environment.
