The wind turbine project is made possible by two RIT Students, Dan Lampie and David Brenner who both graduated May 2010. This project was not sponsored by RIT, but instead Dan and Dave’s personal curiosity and desire to both learn and innovate. The wind turbine was located at RIT during 2009 and 2010 on a hill located between Building 78 and the Red Barn. Sadly, a parking lot needed to be constructed where the turbine was installed forcing the project to be removed.
Dan was the main force behind the project which he started with an interest in alternative energy. Dan built all the components of the project including the wind turbine, tower, charge controller, and setup the antennas and wireless network. Dave provided crucial assistance throughout the project and utilized his programming and hardware expertise to make the power meter a working reality.
Dan and Dave would also like to thank RIT's Computer Science House and its members for the tools and other resources used during the construction of this project. Additionally, there were a number of our friends that helped with moving, erecting, and dismantling the wind turbine. Specifically, we would like to thank Josh Dietrich, Ian Mikutel, and anyone else that helped out.
