Government Pumps Funds Into Research on Windmills WASHINGTON (AIM - The federal government is getting serious about th** windmills as it pumps more money into the development of new designs for the ant lent energy source. For centuries of European and Asian civilization, windmills ground grain, drove ships and pumped water. But their importance declined with the discovery of oil and the invention of the steam engine. In this country they have been used on individual farms to pump water and drive electric generators. Now, with world energy supplies growing scarcer and costs soaring, the windmill has acquired a new appeal as a clean, limitless source of power. Awarded Contracts The National Science Foundation and National Aeronautics and Space Administration recently awarded $5(MI (MMI contracts to two industrial firms for preliminary design of very large wind energy systems. The contractors, General Electric Co. Space Division and Kaman Aerospace Corp., will examine modern versions of windmills at sizes that generate UMI kilowatts for use by small communities or farm cooperatives to 3 megawatts for possible connection into the power networks of large utility companies. A 3 megawatt windmill would he the largest ever built. Its rotor blades would he* about 2(M! feet in diameter and each windmill could produce enough electricity to supply KHI to 2tMi homes, NASA reported. The foundation plans to invest $30 million in wind energy research projects in the next five years and already has invested nearly $1 million in construction of a KHI kilowatt windmill near Sandusky, Ohio. Power 111 Homes The Ohio windmill, to he completed next Indiana Man Pleads Guilty to Check Count An Indiana man who pled guilty Monday in Cedar Rapids federal court to one charge of interstate transportation of a forged check was given an 18-month prison sentence by Judge Edward J. McManus. Edgar Francis Hutton, 34, of Elkhart, admitted to cashing a fraudulent cheek in Cedar Rapids April 4. The check was drawn on an account in a Florida bank With Hutton’s guilty plea. Asst. U.S. Atty. Robert Sikma asked the court to dismiss other similar charges. July, will stand 160 feet tall and its 120-foot diameter blades are intended to catch the wind and convert it to enough power to run IO homes. I hat project and the newest studies are being managed for the foundation by NASA's lewis Research Center, Cleveland. tither wind energy projects sponsored by the foundation include research on the wind itself, methods of harnessing wind energy, small systems for remote areas, and the assessment of environmental, legal, social, economic and other issues regarding wind power The Atomic Energy Commission also announced this week that it is testing an egg-heater-shaped wind turbine whose 15-foot blades drive into the wind to generate electricity. A prototype has been mounted atop a building ai the Sandia Laboratories in Albuquerque, N. M. Wide Potential I he AEC said this vertical axis turbine has the potential for wide use in the Great Plains and other places where the wind blows regularly with sufficient velocity. In another recent development. Honolulu has said it is the first American city to pay for a study of the feasibility of building windmills Donald Grace of the University of Hawaii Center for Engineering Research, which is conducting the study, said preliminary investigation indicates that a windmill, which costs about $5(1,(MMI, would pay for itself within seven years and could last up to 50 years. He said it takes about $7,(MMI a year to buy enough fuel to produce the same amount of energy as one windmill Monitored Speeds University researchers monitored wind speeds on several Hawaiian mountain peaks <\>v n\VV ♦TS* S Vr ,*V To Order Your Gazette Wont Ad DIAL 398-8234 8 A.M. lo 5 P M Monday Ow Fndoy ‘Til Noon So*.- Wait (his ought to be good. ’ Smulekpff's FINE HOME FURNISHINGS w.

Earlier this year, Prof. William Heronomus, a civil engineer at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst, proposed an ambitious scheme to supply all of New England's electricity with a network of giant windmills anchored offshore in the Atlantic ocean. He said 14,7(H) windmills located 12 to 200 miles offshore would generate 159 billion kilowatt hours of electricity a year — four times as much as the six New England states used last year fyu* load could be easily doubled, he said. Among technological problems that would have to be solved, he said. are designing large propellers that would turn easily and withstand hurricanes William Irving, director of research and environmental affairs for Boston Edison, said another problem is what to do when the wind is calm. “We couldn’t see a utility putting all those millions of dollars offshore and then depending heavily on it.” Irving said. “We’d have to have some kind of backup ” He said utilities are studying the uses of wind as a source of electricity in the future. But right now they are going ahead with a program to build nuclear power plants. You can do something about the energy crisis! Bm? Modal RIM Buy a MICROWAVE^OVEN mad* only by Iii® i SAVE 50 - 75°/.
