PIPESTONE, Minn., April 8, 2014
PIPESTONE, Minn., April 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Juhl Energy, Inc. (OTCQB:
JUHL, the "Company"), a leading provider of clean energy solutions and a
leader in community wind power development, is pleased to announce the recent
broadcast of The Weather Channel®'s visit to the Honda Transmission
Manufacturing of America plant in Russells Point, Ohio, and tour of the
facility, including its on-site wind project.
The wind project is owned and operated by ConEdison Solutions of Valhalla, New
York, one of America's largest energy services companies, and was developed by
David Malkoff, correspondent for The Weather Channel® visited the Honda plant
earlier this year. The Honda plant is the first major automotive
manufacturing facility in the United States to obtain a substantial amount of
its electricity directly from wind turbines located on its property.
The two operating wind turbines, with blades that are approximately 160 feet
long installed on 260-foot towers, are expected to supply approximately 10
percent of the plant's electricity. Based on their location and actual wind
speeds, the combined output from the two wind turbines is estimated at
10,000-megawatt hours (MWH) per year.
Tyler Juhl, VP of Juhl Energy Services, Inc. provided Malkoff and his
production team with access to the towers and the amazing views from the top
of the turbines. "It was great having The Weather Channel at the Honda
facility and giving them an opportunity to show that renewable energy
definitely has applications for the traditional manufacturing industry,"
"Wind power is our country's fastest-growing energy source, and The Weather
Channel's coverage is an ideal way to help Americans appreciate wind power's
many applications," said Jorge Lopez, CEO of ConEdison Solutions. "We are
delighted that The Weather Channel chose to showcase this facility."
