Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 11, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta io .inc LK i umommamr Brushless windplant provides power PRINCE B.C. A new concept in wind- generated power may well revolutionize electrical service throughout the non- urban areas of the Cana- dian West. A generation windplants but called 'windmills' dotted the prairies and the B.C. Interior. Gradually they became obsolete. The brushes wore so did the commutator. They wouldn't put out until the wind got up to a pretty skookum pace. They interferred with radio and with television. As hydro power became more available through rural electrification and with gas and propane readily available and cheap the wind plants fell into disfavor and dis- use. All that has now. An old Australian SAFETY WAND FLASHLIGHT LIMIT 1 PER CUSTOMER TO FIRST 500 CUSTOMERS JUST CLIP AD AND BRING IT TO THE RADIO SHACK 327 5th St. Lethbridge light company has come up with a new concept in wind- driven power plants. Quirk Victory Light Co. of Sydney produces nearly all the wind-generating equip- ment in the world and most of their current production is a alternator-type electricity- producer that overcomes all the drawbacks of the old generators. The alternator plant will work with very little wind low as 6-8 miles per with no brushes or commutator its handful of moving parts virtually never wear there is no interference with radio or television. How much power will the brushless windplant That's like asking high is In areas with fairly constant stiff it is conceivable that the average farm or ranch could produce all it requires. Where winds are lighter or less the fanner can instal extra sets of to store more power when the wind is thus permitting more in windless periods. 11 RON WOLFE Manager DARLENETERRY HARVEY STEFFENSON BOB FLEXHAUG REG BROWN BOBJACKLIN Service Manager WYN GIBSON BOB SANSOME JOHN HENDERSON JAN VAN DYK SAM Lethbridge MAX Raymond-Warner GOLDEN Cardston Driver Representatives LEE Foremost JIM Pincher Creek Thanking our many friends and customers for their patronage over the past years.
