Alternative Energy as a School Project
Posted December 12, 2009on:
We’ve discussed a school-wide program to convert student and teacher homes over to the new energy efficient bulbs, perhaps selling the bulbs. We’ve discussed installing a solar hot water heater, but our school doesn’t use much hot water, probably not enough to show a return. I’d like to look into wind energy.
Has anybody tackled this problem? I have done only basic research on the topic. I’ve spoken to our zoning person in the town I live in (I work in Philadelphia), and he says nobody has put one in yet. I’m curious if there are grants or other assistance programs out there to aid schools in bringing this kind of technology to the students.
