ANNOUNCEMENT: Congratulations to our Phase 1 Finalists!

We are proud to announce two finalists in our Seeking Ice Advice: NextEra Energy Resources, LLC, Wind Turbine Challenge.

The two finalists include:
1. De-Icing and Hydrophobic Coating Application Drone, submitted by Mr. Janis Putrams
2. WindChime, submitted by Mr. John Kelly

This challenge provided many well-thought out and truly innovative ideas to help us limit or prevent icing on our wind turbine blades. And, now we move into the next phase of this challenge – development and implementation. This is where the rubber meets the road!

In a few days, we will award the initial grants to both teams.

Congratulations to everyone who has submitted an idea. We thank you for your creativity and willingness to help the wind business develop a solution.

Best regards,

@NextEra Energy Resources
How many drone submissions were there?, I had one also but not as big as the winner's.
I have the advantage of living closer to the work projects.
