World : Norman wind power company wins federal research grant

NORMAN — A series of federal research grants promises to help Norman’s Bergey Windpower Co. lower its costs and better compete with international firms.

The U.S. Department of Energy announced this week that Bergey has received one of six new contracts totaling $1.49 million awarded by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory’s Distributed Wind Competitiveness Improvement Project designed to help make small-scale wind power more affordable.

Distributed electricity refers to small-scale power generated at a home or business, as opposed to large-scale projects owned by electric utilities.

Bergey President Mike Bergey said his company will use the almost $249,000 grant to help develop a new tower design that will allow customers to install a Bergey home wind system without the need for a concrete base.
