The Appalachian State Renewable Energy Initiative is a student-led, student-funded organization that seeks to install renewable energy and energy efficiency projects on campus. Projects can be proposed by any student, and are carried out with the help of faculty and staff advisors by the REI committee. Since its inception in 2005, the REI has funded a number of projects, including the Broyhill Wind Turbine, which, until recently, was the largest wind turbine in North Carolina.
The REI is an incredible opportunity for students interested in renewable energy to get first hand experience with renewable energy project development. Committee meetings will be held every Friday at 11:00AM. Click HERE for the room schedule for Spring 2018. Interested students are encouraged to attend!
