100 kW Wind Turbine
The wind turbine has become the iconic symbol of Appalachian's commitment to renewable energy. The 100 kW facility is the largest wind turbine in the state and was paid for by the ASU Renewable Energy Initiative with support from New River Light & Power.
Situated at the highest point on campus and standing more than 153 feet tall, it was selected specifically to depict an industry-scale wind turbine, thus educating the entire region. As of May of 2012, the turbine had produced over 311,000 kWh, enough energy to sustain 336 homes for one month.
