Former Red Deer College students awarded for green energy project
A former team of Red Deer College engineering technology students recently took home an award for modernizing a centuries-old device and transforming it into a source of renewable energy. For their end-of-term Capstone Project, Tyler Podgorenko, Michael Nosterud, Spencer Otto and James Greenough took the ram pump to the next level by adding a turbine in the form of a Pelton wheel, which can be used to extract energy from the impulse of flowing water and generate clean electricity.
