What if your family installed a renewable energy system? What would that mean for you? Read about it.

The Tobias family in Pilger, Nebraska installed a 10kW wind turbine on their farm. This turbine generates electricity. Here is Becky's story:

When we put up our wind turbine, I got out of school for 2 days. It was really fun to watch the crane lift up the 100 foot tower like it was nothing. Then a guy climbed the tower to disconnect it from the crane, without any safety gear. That was cool because he did it so fast, less than 4 minutes! We timed him. It was cool to watch them put up the tower, much better than being in school.

Hardly anyone at school knows we have a wind turbine, even if they understood what it was they wouldn't believe we had one.
