Wind 101

Wind 101In the Fall of 2009, filmmaker Frank Grant debuted his half-hour long, high definition film Wind 101: The University of Maine at Presque Isle Builds a Wind Turbine. Narrated by long-time theater professor Joseph Zubrick, the film follows the step-by-step process it took for the University to complete this major renewable energy project - from the very first energy survey to the very last installation detail - and the bumps encountered along the way. This film also shows the work the University has done to turn this project into an educational opportunity for its students and the greater community. In fact, in watching this story unfold, you become a part of this effort to share - with anyone who wants to know - exactly what it takes to build a wind turbine.
