TVSC Installs Wind Turbine to Cut Down Electricity

Tippecanoe Valley School Corporation (TVSC) celebrated the customary ground breaking to mark the construction of a wind energy project at the premises of Tippecanoe Valley Middle School and Tippecanoe Valley High School.

Tippecanoe Valley High School

It is the first school in Indiana to venture a wind generation project. The wind energy project was conceived by the school in September 2008. To make the project feasible, it received a grant of $2.3 million in the form of Clean Renewable Energy Bonds.

The school worked along with Kosciusko REMC, the utility partner in the wind energy project. Performance Services, an Indianapolis-based company, has been chosen to design the project and complete the construction. The 321-foot high wind turbine, which is expected to be installed near the school’s bus garage over an agricultural field, will generate around 900 kW of clean power to meet about 70% of power requirements of both the schools. The project is anticipated to be functional by October 2011.

According to Brett Boggs, superintendent of TVSC, the wind project will enable the school to introduce a clean energy curriculum for students by utilizing the live wind generation data of the turbine through a web based interface.
