Ecotech Institute Celebrates Global Wind Day

Ecotech Institute hosted a free community event on June 14 to celebrate Global Wind Day.

Adult attendees will remember the campus tours and wind power demonstrations but the kids will likely remember the free kites they received.

The event also featured door prizes and a live remote by KTCL (93.3 FM).

According to The European Wind Energy Association (EWEA) and the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC), Global Wind Day (officially June 15) is a day for discovering wind, its power and the possibilities it holds to change our world. This is a day that encourages people to find out everything there is know about wind energy, including how it is produced and what jobs exist. Wind farms are currently in more than 75 countries around the world.
