Schools Looking Toward Wind Power  


(AP) Redwood Falls, Minn. Schools across Minnesota are hoping to create a revenue source and an educational experience for students by tapping the font of renewable energy.

Fourteen Minnesota districts have signed on to a plan that would give schools cooperative ownership of a wind farm.

Mike Pieper from Johnson Controls, the firm organizing the project, says the schools involved want to bring math and science to students in a way that has positive economic, social and environmental outcomes.

Johnson Controls will fund the development costs of the wind farm. The subsequent revenue is expected to pay back those costs and then supplement school budgets.

The site of the wind farm hasn’t been chosen, but six locations in south-central and southwestern Minnesota are being considered.

It’s hoped that construction will begin in the spring.
