(tiered subscription model) (6/2)Opinion: Proposed N.C. wind energy moratorium would be harmful

EDF Renewable Services has joined forces with 3M
EDF RS now installs 3M™ Wind Vortex Generators. Vortex generators are tailored to each specific blade type and improve the blade performance by energizing the flow around the surface. This reduces flow separation and increases the performance of the entire turbine in terms of power, load and service life. Schedule a consultation with our VG experts.
