Kansas public schools are embracing wind as an energy source. This summer, five school districts in the state plan to install small wind turbines. The units won’t produce much power, but will serve as a teaching tool for students and communities. It is part of a national initiative to pair wind turbines with schools in six states. The U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory selected Kansas, Nebraska, Idaho, Colorado, South Dakota and Montana for the Wind for Schools program.
