Randolph Eastern School Corp. and Union City, Ind., will receive two wind turbines on Jan. 8. The turbines will produce power for both the school and the city.
Performance Services Inc., an Indiana-based design-build engineering company, is managing the project. It includes two 330-foot-high, 1 MW Nordic Windpower turbines.
‘We are proud to be part of this first-of-its-kind partnership with a city, a school corporation and an energy savings firm,’ says Cathy Stephen, superintendent of Randolph Eastern School Corp. ‘This creates an opportunity to produce wind energy, which will lessen our carbon footprint. It also allows us to create revenue for our school corporation in difficult economic times and, most importantly, will give our students and citizens an opportunity to be part of a cutting-edge K-12 school curriculum in alternative energy.’
