Hi, This is Ken Morgan from Venger Wind. We are the manufacturers of the turbines on the roof of OMRF. The actual estimated amount of power produced per year is 85,000 kilowatt hours. The total energy offset, which also includes the solar systems on the roof is estimated to provide 12.5% per year for the entire building. OMRF is effectively cutting their carbon emissions by 2 million pounds annually which is equal to 44,000 gallons of gasoline per year. And to answer the question directly; The systems were just installed 2 weeks ago as of today June 27th 2012, so we don't have any performance data yet. We will be keeping a close watch over this next year and will report back as to how they are performing.
It is indicated that the turbines are expected to produce about 58,000 kilowatt hours of electrical energy each year and the total power output is estimated to help the tower cut power usage by as much as 37 percent.
