Outside of White Salmon, WA, up the windy Snowden Rd., on a ridge with sweeping views of Mt. Adams and Mt. Hood, and a small glimpse of the Columbia River and the Central Gorge, Hire Electric is putting up a 10kw Bergey. Small wind machines make for such a cool project. The trench, the foundation layout, the concrete truck, the crane and the first windy day with the meter flying backwards and the homeowner beaming from ear to ear – it just doesn’t get any better than that in the renewable energy world.
Hire Electric just got listed on www.bergey.com as the installer of the Gorge. We’re excited about this continued relationship. The first 10k Bergey machine we helped put up outside of Goldendale was in 2003. It’s been running flawlessly ever since. Putting out a consistant 13,000kwh’s per year.
