A couple of new items will allow students at Illinois Valley Community College learn how to repair wind turbines.

The renewable wind energy technician program is buying two mobile workstations to troubleshoot turbine problems.

A grant from the National Science Foundation is paying for the units and a virtual instrumentation suite which together cost over $167,000.
