Press Release
NV Energy has presented a $40,000 rebate to the City of Reno to offset a portion of the installation costs of a 15-kilowatt (kW) wind turbine at the Stead Wastewater Treatment Plant on Norton Drive at Stead. The turbine is located atop a 50-foot tower.<br /> <br /> &quot;This is the largest wind turbine installed through NV Energy&rsquo;s WindGenerations program, and the largest rebate for a wind turbine,&quot; according to John Hargrove, the company&rsquo;s project manager for energy efficiency and conservation.<br /> <br /> At Thursday&rsquo;s gathering to celebrate the completion of the project, Reno City Council Members Dwight Dortch and Dave Aiazzi accepted the rebate check on behalf of the city. <br /> Since the start of the WindGenerations program in 2008, 28 projects that generate a combined total of 92 kW have been installed statewide, and $234,800 in incentives has been paid to program participants, Hargrove said, adding that the Stead wind turbine is the first one installed at a public building.<br /> <br /> The city expects the Stead turbine will be first in a series of 10 wind turbines that will be installed throughout the city as part of Reno&rsquo;s $20 million Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Initiative.<br /> <br /> NV Energy recently made changes to the WindGenerations program so that participants can apply for larger rebates. The kilowatt ceiling on projects was raised from 50 to 500 kW for public buildings, and from 50 to 250 kW for schools. The ceiling for residential wind turbines was increased from 30 to 60 kW for residential customers. Program details are available at<br /> <br />
