Wind for Schools Dashboard

Welcome to the Wind for Schools Portal! The U.S. Department of Energy funds the Wind for Schools project, which helps develop a future wind energy workforce by encouraging students at higher education institutions to join Wind Application Centers and serve as project consultants for small wind turbine installations at rural elementary and secondary schools. This dashboard displays data from all of these small wind turbines.
