Dan Brenn, owner of Brenn Pump and Supply in Colby, recently donated and installed a tower for the wind turbine at the college farm.

“The installed value is about $4,000,” said CCC instructor Derek Reilley.  “Dan is on the Solar/Wind Program Advisory Board and has been a huge supporter since the college started the program.”

The unique program is a one-year course of study that concentrates specifically on Small Wind Technology (50 kW/h and smaller).  Small wind turbines are designed for the home, farm and small-to-medium sized businesses.

“Because this program is online, it gives the student the ability to learn and work from home,” said Reilley.  “Certain online courses have a one Saturday boot camp that is highly recommended.  However, if the student is unable to attend, an alternative assignment will be given.  Each semester the student is engaged in multiple online courses that prepare him/her for a career in the wind turbine industry.”

The program can be completed in one year enabling students to prepare quickly for a wind turbine industry career.
