Honda Installs Wind Turbines at Plant
Honda Transmission Mfg. of America, Inc. finalized installation and will begin operation of two power-producing wind turbines next week at its plant in Russells Point, Ohio.
The installation of the turbines means that the plant will be the first major automotive manufacturing facility in the US to obtain a substantial amount of its electricity directly from wind turbines located on its property. Honda Transmission will also reduce CO2 emissions through the use of this renewable energy source.
The two wind turbines will supply approximately 10 percent of the plant’s electricity. Based on their location and actual wind speeds, combined output from the two wind turbines is estimated at 10,000 MWh per year.
The turbines, with blades approximately 160 feet long, have been installed on 260-foot towers on Honda Transmission property, which is suited for a maximum of two wind turbines.
