Some highlights from their school:
- 3 wind turbines powering 60 % of their electricity
- biodiesel buses
- green energy superintendent's house (district owned)
- wind turbines
- a science lab where kids learn how to make their own wind turbines...
- solar panels that track the sun's movement
- a new biomass boiler for the superintendent's home
- processors to make biodiesel and seed oil...
- program to use 20% biodiesel on buses and retrofit old buses with equipment to clean up their diesel emissions...
- plug-in hybrid buses...
- biomass boilers"
More importantly though, as fossil fuel prices skyrocket and carbon capturing eventually becomes regulated, green energy will become more economical to everybody, and we'll all have to change our ways, which means a cleaner world for everybody (I voted cautiously optimistic today).
