Va. School Studying Whether it Can Use Wind for Energy

April 6, 2012

Massanutten Regional Governor's School is planning a study to determine whether there's sufficient wind to provide electricity for the school and Triplett Tech.

The Virginia Center for Wind Energy has loaned Massanutten a 66-foot meteorological wind tower. Data collected by students will be given to researchers at James Madison University.

The data also will be used in the classroom and will be available to the public.

Remy Pangle with the center tells The Daily News-Record that the project's goal is primarily to provide education about wind power.

The project is part of the national Wind for Schools program.
