Marcellus Jacobs at the State Fair

Posted on by Steve Jacobs

A look back at Jacobs Wind Electric almost 30 years ago before the end of the second wave of wind energy. Marcellus Jacobs talks about Jacobs Wind, the 10kW machine he’s standing next to, and other various design factors and experience that he had picked up from over 50 years in the wind industry at that time.

The second half is an informal conversation with a fair patron where ML talks more on the basic design of the Jacobs machine, what makes a good wind site, the reason for going with three blades, and more.

The original footage was recorded on Betamax, transferred to VHS, copied to DVD and finally encoded into MPEG. Along the way the first two clips fell victim to some excess noise. This new video takes care of that problem.
