Our acquisition of a small wind turbine for the Union City Community HS Science Department grew into a partnership between Performance Services, Inc. and Randolph Eastern Schools. This resulted in the installation of a one megawatt turbine in 2010. We believe we were either the first or one of the few school districts in the country to have their own wind turbine. The generated power is sold to with revenue going to offset energy costs within our schools. We also offer courses in alternative energy as part of our curriculum.
