Wind for Schools Affiliate Programs Fact Sheet
The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE's) Wind for Schools program is designed to raise awareness about the benefits of wind energy while simultaneously developing a wind energy knowledge base in future leaders of our communities, states, and nation. To accommodate the many stakeholders who are interested in the program, a Wind for Schools affiliate program has been implemented. Individual K-12 schools or states that join the affiliate program will not receive financial support from DOE and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), but they will receive access to technical assistance, program Web sites, and information. The program is designed to support schools that wish to implement wind-related educational curricula and install a Wind for Schools wind turbine system or states that intend to implement a statewide program. This fact sheet describes the two affiliate programs.
