Arizona Wind for Schools Team Installs Two Turbines

October 11, 2011

A Skystream wind turbine was erected on the Williams Elementary/Middle School campus earlier this week, launching the U.S. DOE's Wind for Schools project in the rural Arizona school district. Middle school students will perform engineering activities and learn about wildlife and siting concepts with the support of staff and university students from Northern Arizona University's Wind for Schools project team. NextEra Energy Resources, which is constructing a wind farm north of Williams, funded the turbine installation. WestWind Solar performed the installation. The team installed another Skystream within a few days at the Saint Michael Indian School in St. Michaels and plans to install a turbine at Northern Arizona University next week.
