Arizona School First to Run Entirely on Renewable Energy

Nov 19, 2012

A rural elementary school in Arizona offers a lesson in grid independence - albeit small, it is the first in the US to run entirely on renewable energy.

Five wind turbines and 100 solar panels supply the school's electricity.

The Star Charter School, located in rural Arizona about 30 miles from Flagstaff, serves 130 students pre-school through eighth grade. It is sited close to a major Navajo reservation.
