Wind for Schools and Universities
Wind Power can help empower teachers, students, and communities.
In the context of rising utility costs and expanding budgets, schools and universities across the country are embracing wind power. By harnessing the wind that blows across playgrounds, parking lots, and university campuses, administrators and communities are realizing the rewards that a community-sized wind turbine can bring to operational budgets. A wind turbine adds an experiential dimension to science, math, and civic programs – helping to spark interest and imagination in the technicians and engineers of tomorrow.
“The opportunity with wind for schools is not only to educate tomorrow’s leaders about energy and the environment, but also to gain real savings that can translate to teacher positions, arts programs, and facility improvements and even other renewable energy projects.” – Michael J. McGlynn, Mayor of Medford, Massachusetts
