The Fairfield Ledger reported that the 20-year-old used turbine, a Vestas V15, was purchased by Maharishi World Peace Vedic Organics' from the state of California (which is updating their wind technology) with the help of a grant from the US Department of Agriculture, which is providing a quarter of the funds for the $92,800 project.

The Ledger reported that according to the Iowa Energy Center of Iowa State University calculations 'the turbine will produce 78,000 kilowatt hours of electricity per year,' which is more than enough needed to run the two greenhouses, and add on more.
