Why I’m biking to Kokomo

On October 19, Brian Killkelley and I will take our bicycles to Kokomo, Indiana. Why?

Kokomo is the home of Northwestern School Corporation, one of the districts participating in our Indiana School Wind Project. Together with NativeEnergy clients and our development partner, Performance Services, we will ride to celebrate this new Help Build™ carbon project. We have enabled three more schools to install wind turbines that will power school buildings, save money, and provide hands-on training for students.

As Harold Seamon, assistant superintendent of Northwestern, says: 

“Every dollar we save on energy costs and earn from
carbon offsets is a dollar
we can spend in the classroom.”

The Indiana School Wind Project is the right solution for difficult times. With our changing climate, this project illustrates the practical ways in which communities can take action.

I am honored—as a NativeEnergy team member and as a father—to be part of this incredible school project. After riding from Indianapolis, we will host an event at Northwestern High School on October 19.

I encourage you to read about the Indiana school wind turbines: http://www.nativeenergy.com/indiana-school-wind-project-2.html. We are currently offering carbon offsets from this project to business customers. To learn more, send us a note at business@nativeenergy.com or call 800-924-6826 x209.
