Brigantine School District Alternative Energy
Brigantine, New Jersey
In September 2011, the Brigantine School District became the first school district in New Jersey to have windmills installed on top of their Elementary School roof to help harness the energy created by the strong winds from the Atlantic Ocean. The windmills are anticipated to produce between 1,200 and 1,900 kilowatt hours. In addition to the two windmills, 1,170 solar panels were installed on the Elementary School's roof top that could produce an estimated 325,000 kWh. The Design Collaborative's engineering team was contracted to design the alternative energy system. The total cost of construction was $1,940,000.00.
