By Mathias Craig -- blueEnergy has been building wind turbines in Nicaragua since 2004 to electrify remote villages and provide backup power for their facilities in Bluefields. In the last year, blueEnergy France introduced wind turbine building workshops in Paris both for the general public and as a corporate team-building activity. The purpose of these workshops has been to raise awareness of renewable energy and raise unrestricted funding to support blueEnergy's general operation.
blueEnergy US is excited to announce that starting in early 2011 it will be offering wind turbine building workshops in the San Francisco Bay Area and elsewhere in California with the same goals as the French workshops. The initial workshops will be targeted at high school and college students. blueEnergy has already drafted an initial agreement for the first such workshop to take place in the Spring at Midland High School (Mathias Craig's alma mater). Additional workshops are being discussed for Santa Clara University and Stanford.
