Wind for Schools

The following is a brief summary by Alex from the website Wind for Schools
With the knowledge that the future of our energy lies within the children of today, the U.S. Department of Energy’s Wind Powering America Program developed the Wind for Schools program in 2006. The main objectives of this program include: to encourage university-level wind education and training, to promote on-site education at the K-12 level by installing wind systems at schools unable to fund them on their own, and to support K-12 wind energy education in schools with installed systems and surrounding schools. This program is currently operating in eleven states, and is open for starting in other states. The most used and recommended product for schools wishing to participate is the Skystream wind turbine. When schools install this, they also get a full communication system which allows students to monitor the performance of their turbine and energy consumption. This is a great tool for the learning community.
