Windstream Technical Support Center is open to the public

The Windstream technical services center at the University of Windsor is now open to anyone wanting to take advantage of its online support.

The facility is located at the intersection of Windsor and Huron streets, but will be open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Wednesdays to Saturdays, as well as weekends.

“We have a number of our staff that are working on their research, and some of our employees are working remotely from their offices,” said Mike Smith, general manager for the center.

“We want to be a resource for anyone who is looking to find out more about wind energy, or just want to have some basic questions answered.”

Windstream has partnered with a number other Canadian universities, universities and companies to offer support to students and others looking to learn about wind technology and its impacts on the environment.

The center is currently hiring for a number positions, including customer service, support of applications for new and existing programs, as a virtual instructor, and support of educational materials.

Windstream also offers a wide range of other support services, including training and information sessions, but the online center has more of a focus on wind turbine repairs, maintenance and maintenance of equipment, which are among the areas in which Windstream provides support.
