WOODSTOCK, Va. (AP) - Wind turbines are popping up at some schools in Virginia.
The Daily News-Record reports one wind turbine was installed in the past week both at Central High School in Woodstock and at Thomas Harrison Middle School in Harrisonburg.
The turbines were built as part of James Madison University's Wind for Schools program, which had already two other turbines for school use.
Shenandoah County Public Schools finance director Jeremy Raley says the Central High turbine will generate enough electricity to power one classroom. But he says the turbine was meant to educate students about using wind as a sustainable energy source.
