The article reports on the test of the researchers at Blackhawk Project LLC of their Blackhawk Tilt Rotor (TR-10) Vertical Axis Wind Turbine (VAWT) to determine whether this system can be used to derive energy solutions. It reveals that TR-10 has the ability to produce around 1.5 kilowatts of power. CAES program coordinator Raymond Grosshans says the test aims to encourage the collaborations between Idaho National Laboratory researchers, research universities and private sector.
