We take climate change seriously at Clif Bar & Company. As one part of our climate strategy, we partner with NativeEnergy to help build new sources of renewable energy. Since 2003 we've invested in more than 30 renewable energy projects, including the first Native American-owned wind turbine in South Dakota and a large-scale wind farm in Greensburg, Kansas, a town that rebuilt green after being destroyed by a massive tornado. We’re especially excited about our recent support of school-based wind turbines in Indiana.
Wind energy is revolutionizing science education. In Indiana, NativeEnergy is helping schools build wind turbines that provide hands-on learning opportunities.
On October 19, Brian Killkelley and I will take our bicycles to Kokomo, Indiana. Why?
Most high schools don’t have demo wind turbines in their gyms, where students can learn climbing safety and other skills. But that’s the least of the cool technology at Union City Community High (UCCHS), home of the Indiana Community Wind Project.
