James Madison University staff and students were back at North Branch School again this past week to put up an anemometer tower. We first told you about the beginning phases of a study back in November of 2010. That was the first step of a process that might eventually allow NBS to have their own wind turbine at the school.
“The anemometer tower will be set up temporarily as part of the national Wind for Schools program. JMU’s Center for Wind Energy administers the program for the state of Virginia. North Branch students will collect and graph wind speed data as part of the science curriculum for the 2011-2012 school year,” Bonnie Holliday of NBS tells Nelson County Life.
