Commission Date: July 31, 2011
Wind Powering America. (August 2011). "Arizona Wind for Schools Team Installs First Turbine: A Wind Powering America Success Story."
Donors include Southwest Windpower (donated turbine), Arizona Public Service ($5,000), NextEra Energy, and Prometheus Renewables. High school students coordinated and performed a public meeting to present the project to neighbors, parents, and other Flagstaff high school students. The turbine is part of a hybrid solar and wind energy off-grid installation designed by Northern Arizona University (NAU) students, who are also designing and performing energy education activities with the high school students. NAU students worked with the installation company and Coconino Community College students in the alternative energy technician program. The community college students receive lab service learning credit.
