Knowledge is power.
Schools by nature have a tremendous social responsibility to students and communities. School buildings should be exemplary buildings for energy efficiency through renewable power generation and conservation which will lead to future generations moving towards high energy standards.
Schools in developing countries face significant learning inefficiencies due to unreliable and intermittent power supply from their power grid.
There are no lights, no computers and no automation; just the silence of students patiently waiting for the power to return;
In a University in Ghana the Per Capita Consumption of electricity (kWh/person) is 364 kWh. Placed locally, just one 4.5 Magnetic Air turbine can satisfy the power demands of approximately 32 students and 10 turbines can satisfy the power demands of 320 students at the university.
Don’t be paralyzed at school, use Magnetic Air turbines to learn efficiently.
Sustainable and environmentally friendly distributed power generation systems available now.
An average elementary school in the United States uses approximately 33 MWh per month of which 70% is used for HVAC and lighting. As a comparison, an average house hold uses 1 MWh per month. The annual electricity bill for this school is approximately $48,000 USD at $0.12 USD/kWh. During the next 25 years this school can spend over $1,400,000 USD purchasing electricity from their local utility or they can spend approximately $350,000 (after government incentives) to generate 100% of the power demand at the school using Magnetic Air turbines.

“The evidence is overwhelming and the science is clear, that the threat of climate change is real and urgent. The basic science behind climate change is simple, carbon dioxide makes the earth warmer and we are emitting more and more of it into the atmosphere at a rate that has long been understood to have a material and cumulative impact on a scale that is measured in decades not centuries. This increase in atmospheric greenhouse gasses, above all from the combustion of fossil fuels is affecting the climate. Carbon dioxide is particularly important both because of the magnitude of the emissions and because it has long lived in the atmosphere. All of this was known long ago, what was not anticipated was the pace at which energy needs would grow to serve seven billion people on the planet with rapid industrialization. Every ton that we emit now irreversibly commits our children and grandchildren to the risk of climate disruption. And though we cannot attribute any one storm for example to climate change, cumulatively we can say that raising sea levels, increasingly severe droughts, heat waves, wild fires, and major storms are amplified by a warming climate. This is already costing our economy billions of dollars a year and common sense and prudence demand we take action.”
