Sharing excitement for small wind with our community.


Through presentations at local colleges, class visits and open houses at our facility, and green buildings tours, we engage with our community. Educational outreach is central to our mission, and we welcome opportunities to work with individuals and groups to broaden understanding of distributed wind energy.


Higher Education

We work closely with students from Cornell University and Ithaca College to offer real-world learning material for earth science, renewable energy, and engineering course work.  WWE welcomes enthusiastic interns from diverse backgrounds and academic disciplines.

Politics

When NY State politicians want to know more about the windy side of renewable energy, we are happy to help them understand our cutting edge industry. 

 

Schools

We open our doors to local school groups to offer educational opportunities for all ages. We are also working with several New York schools to install turbines to bring advanced energy systems into view for students.
