Wind turbines in your community


Wind turbines in your community

Cleaner air. A greener future. Lower utility bills. Helping achieve energy independence. With so many benefits for all of us in increasing the world’s use of renewable, non-polluting energy sources, more and more local governments are setting examples for their communities by installing wind turbines at schools and public buildings.

Using wind energy attracts businesses and residents who want to be part of a green community that’s doing its part to move toward energy independence and sets a good example for others to follow.

Everyone benefits when local governments install Skystream wind turbines to help power public buildings.

Local schools can take advantage of the turbine’s operation to teach important lessons in science, math, civics and the environment. Your government may even choose to set up a kiosk in public areas such as city hall or the courthouse to demonstrate the turbine’s operation and energy-producing capacity.

Here are a few examples of how other cities are using wind power:

Reach out to your local government officials or utilities and ask how they are planning to incorporate renewable energy resources in your community.
