Wind company R Lynette & Associates in Washington state, co-producers of the AWT-26 turbine, is talking with utilities in Vermont, Texas and New York as well as foreign customers in Argentina, China and Ireland. The company prefers not to disclose further details of these talks for business reasons, says president Bob Lynette. He adds these are the areas where everyone is nowadays doing business. Commercial sales of the 275 kW AWT-26 will start in 1995, says Lynette. Testing has been under way for 18 months. The company has also been selected to do a $300,000 study of wind potential in partnership with the University of Nebraska-Lincoln for the Nebraska Wind Energy Site Task Force. The Nebraska Power Association is to pay for the study with the Nebraska Energy Office, which is seeking federal support. Lynette will use existing wind and climate studies and narrow them down to eight general areas for development.
