2009 Colorado Wind For Schools Host Schools

The Colorado Wind Application Center and the Colorado Governor’s Energy Office (GEO) selected six rural schools for the 2009 Wind for Schools program:  Arriba-Flagler Consolidated School District High School in Flagler, Burlington High School in Burlington, Kit Carson High School in Kit Carson, Stratton High School in Stratton, Walsh High School in Walsh, and Wellington Middle School in Wellington.  Each of the schools received a $5,000 grant from the GEO to help purchase and install a Skystream 3.7 turbine.  The installations were designed during the summer with the help of students and staff from the Colorado WAC.
