The total cost of the project is approximately $19,000. Up front, the local district must contribute $1,500. If the grant is funded a 45 foot wind turbine would be constructed near the school. The wind turbine would produce minimal energy. "Probably only enough to power a computer," Supt. Isom said. However. it should allow students to acquire an under- standing of wind resource assessment and skills to process wind data; an understanding of basic aerodynamics, understanding the basic operation of wind generators, understanding of grid connection issues, understanding of siting issues and an introduction to wind energy economics and public policy. Thc l::vard unanimou':!y approved applying for the grant. However some questioned the long term commitment related to repair and liability.
