Title: Design of a Small - Scale Solar Chimney for Sustainable Power
Minnesota State University Makato students are designing and testing a small-scale solar chimney for use as a renewable energy source. The students seek to minimize the initial cost while creating a system with little to no long term cost (i.e. the power source is free, renewable, and maintenance is minimal).
