Salem couple harnesses wind as power source
TOWN OF SALEM -- Turns out, Roy and Nancy Christianson found a good place to take advantage of Mother Nature for powering and heating their Town of Salem home when they moved there a couple of years ago.
High atop a hill just north of Hwy. 10, the wind is felt there regularly and the spot seems as close as any to the sun.
In fact, a strong gust recently peeled the flashing off part of their roof, which has since been repaired.
