Bergey’s high quality wind turbines have paid for themselves many times over

In the 1970’s, Karl Bergey, an aircraft designer-turned Professor of Aeronautical Engineering at the University of Oklahoma, was conducting feasibility studies looking at wind power. When the oil embargo hit the US, Karl was tagged as an alternate energy expert. Meanwhile, son Mike Bergey was studying Mechanical Engineering and leading a team that won the wind energy portion of an international design competition. When Mike graduated in 1977, father and son launched Bergey Windpower, now the world’s leading manufacturer of small wind turbines, which are in use at over a thousand cell sites worldwide.
