Technology has to be tested before it hits the commercial market, and a multiple turbine design by Mass Megawatts Wind Power has completed its quality control review at a wind energy project in Blandford, Massachusetts. Western Mass Electric and the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative are working to complete the interconnection of the 20kW wind system that stands 72 feet (22m) tall. Mass Megawatts Wind Power develops, builds and operates wind energy power plants capitalising on the Multi-Axis Turbosystem (MAT). According to the company, the MAT technology allows production of electricity at less than 2.5 US cents per kWh in areas with average annual wind speed (recorded 100 feet or 30m above the ground) of at least 16 miles per hour (nearly 26km/h) .
