University Students Buy Wind

Appalachian State Univ NPS 100Located in the Blue Ridge Mountains of northwestern North Carolina, Appalachian State University has built a national reputation for providing outstanding academics. Now their student body is giving back to the institution that has shaped their growth—with a wind turbine. The student-led Renewable Energy Initiative (REI), was created in 2004 in hopes of adding renewable sources to the University’s energy mix. The students overwhelmingly agreed to contribute $5 per student, per semester to bring renewable energy technologies to campus. With the additional financial support from New River Light & Power and a senior class gift, Appalachian State University was able to take a big step toward energy independence by incorporating wind power into their energy needs.
