Clipper Windpower Hires Mesabi Graduate


Jim Perslin, a graduate of Mesabi Range College with a degree in wind energy technology, has been hired as a wind technician for Clipper Windpower's Lake Benton, Minn., facility.

Perslin, who completed an internship last summer at Clipper's High Lonesome Wind Ranch in New Mexico, says he went back to school to earn his wind energy technology degree after the economic downturn.

Students in Mesabi Range College's wind energy technology program work with and troubleshoot large-scale wind turbine equipment in the campus Wind Lab and on field trips to Minnesota Power's Taconite Ridge wind project.
