Kirkwood Community College continues their green initiatives. The school recently announced plans to create a “sustainability village” on campus. It will be used as a research and training hub for sustainable technology.

The 3-acre village will contain three-to-five buildings, a small wind turbine, solar collectors, photovoltaic systems and geothermal devices. There are also plans to construct residential green cabins for research purposes.

Two weeks ago, we reported that Kirkwood installed their first electric-vehicle charging station.

Last month, we reported that Kirkwood finished installing a wind turbine on campus.
