Kreuziger, Ray
November 2006
Countryside & Small Stock Journal;Nov/Dec2006, Vol. 90 Issue 6, p45
The article discusses the re-installation of "Countryside & Small Stock Journal" stand-alone off-grid solar/wind system at the periodical's Medford, Wisconsin location. They began the process by filling the footings for the solar array and wind turbine with concrete. It reveals the measure of the tower mounting plate's footing. It describes the electrical components installed inside the building.
