Wind power cuts Ohio school's electric bills

ARCHBOLD, Ohio (AP) - Two northwest Ohio school districts say wind power is reducing their electricity bills and adding new learning tools for math and science classes.

The Blade newspaper (http://bit.ly/16iOTXU) reports that the Archbold and Pettisville school districts west of Toledo recently celebrated completion and operation of 750-kilowatt wind turbines.

The Pettisville district is trying to meet most of its K-12 school complex energy needs through the turbine, solar panels, and geothermal heating and cooling.

Archbold's superintendent says his district's turbine is expected to provide about 64% and possibly up to 74% of the electricity its high school and elementary school need. The turbine already has cut the district's power bill by about $9,000 a month.
