Alternative Energy Exploration
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars
Overview:

Students will determine the sources of energy that are utilized to power their schools (i.e., conventional and/or alternative). They will then explore the economic and environmental benefits of changing over a portion of this energy to renewable sources such as wind, solar, hydroelectric and geothermal. Depending on area-specific factors such as available funding (funding by state) and climate, this can involve the purchase of alternative energy credits and/or the creation of an on-site system such as a wind-turbine or solar panels.
