2008 - Vanguard Award - Bergey Windpower Company - Norman
Since Oklahoma is renowned throughout the world as the place where “the wind comes sweepin’ down the plain,” it makes sense that one of the world’s leading suppliers of small wind turbines is located in Norman, Oklahoma. What may surprise some people is that Bergey Windpower Company has been putting the wind to work in all 50 states and more than 100 other countries for 30 years. Back in 1992, Bergey Windpower Company received national recognition for its outstanding accomplishment in developing international markets for small wind turbine technology. The company also has received two national design awards for its fiberglass rotor blades. As co-founder of Bergey Windpower and its president for the past 21 years, Mike Bergey has served the American Wind Energy Association in various capacities, including serving twice as its president. As the world increasingly turns to wind power solutions, Bergey Windpower under the leadership of Mike Bergey, is at the forefront of his industry and more than deserving of Keep Oklahoma Beautiful's 2008 Vanguard Award!
