LEBANON, Conn. — Mother nature is helping to teach students in eastern Connecticut what green power is all about. A giant wind turbine has been installed on the campus of Lebanon Middle School.

At 100 feet tall, the wind turbine can easily be seen by drivers on Route 207 in Lebanon.

Lebanon Selectman John Bendoraitis writes that soon there will be a link from www.lebanontownhall.org to a website that will monitor the actual electricity generation from the turbine. 
 
Also, Bendoraitis says, the town recently completed the installation of PV panels on two of its buildings.

One — a 9KW installation — is at the senior center and will have web monitoring of the eneryg output of that unit at http://www.solrenview.com/cgi-bin/CGIhandler.cgi?&sort=pvi_IDs&cond=site_ID=631. So residents will have the opportunity to monitor both the turbine & the PV install.

A second, 4.5KW PV install is at the Lebanon public works building.

From the Norwich Bulletin:

There is a constant low whir coming from the grounds of Lebanon Middle School, and it may be one of the most welcome sounds in town.It is the small, fully operational wind turbine that has taken town leaders more time and work to get up and running than anyone had anticipated. Lebanon won the $70,000 grant for the turbine from the Connecticut Clean Energy Fund in June 2009. The turbine was installed in the summer and began operating Oct. 21.
