SOLAR Can Work in Northeast Alabama
(Last participated in 2009)

The 2009 ATP project involved volunteer/local citizens with our students in researching, planning, and building a solar wind mill constructed from recycled materials found in local junk car-lots. Initial research was done by our Fall Semester 2009 Ethics and Society class. Actual construction of the windmill will be done with combined efforts of both student and community population. Its use could conceivably be actuated in connection with some new technical buildings now under construction on the school grounds.
