HAGATNA, Guam (AP) — The University of Guam's renewable energy department has a new wind turbine.

The Pacific Daily News (http://is.gd/kQL0w5) reports that the wind turbine produces 1 kilowatt-per hour, or enough to power an electric car.

Elvie Tyler with the university's Center for Island Sustainability says the turbine is being used as an educational tool for students who are collecting data and studying renewable energy application on Guam. She also says the study will demonstrate renewable energy's role in the move to reduce dependency on fuel.
