Wildwood Environmental Academy in Maumee, Ohio, is focused on developing "environmentally responsible citizens who work and volunteer in their community to make a difference." The school places an emphasis on environmental sciences to foster a stewardship of the earth. In its efforts, the school will seek to provide for its own energy needs through solar power.
Solar panes will be installed and maintained on campus. Given Ohio's huge reliance on fossil fuel generated electricity, the school will serve as a demonstration of how renewable energy sources can successfully provide electricity. The solar panels will convert all of the buildings on campus to run on solar-generated electricity. This will yield a $15,000 savings annually.
In addition, wind turbines will also be installed on school grounds to charge ipads. Each classroom will have its own programmable thermostat, which will yield even more savings.
