Kansas Wind Applications Center
The Kansas WAC missions are to educate electrical engineers on the basics of wind energy, and to be a source of information on wind energy for the people of Kansas, who want to harvest wind power for the benefit of themselves, their children and the state. If you have questions about how wind power might benefit you, please contact us and we'll be happy to help you.
