Wausau H.S. gets $400,000 for turbine project

From an article in the Wausau Daily Herald:

Members of the Wausau School Board on Monday approved a $400,000 donation for the Wausau East High School wind turbine project.

Members voted 5-0 in favor of accepting the donation, which came from the Walter Alexander Foundation. It will cover most of the estimated $575,000 in project costs.

District officials plan to install two wind turbines on the southeast corner of the Wausau East campus.

The turbines will stand more than 150 feet high and could be operational by next summer, East science teacher Lauren Ebbecke said.
