Energy Education

Energy is an exciting field with interesting educational topics for students of all ages. MMPA supports energy education in the communities we serve. Our Energy Education program is a resource for schools in our member communities.

Energy Education provides regional and local wind energy information as well as Teaching Tools for Educators. The wind energy information includes historical and current wind energy generation, a current wind map, and live turbine information.

Faribault Energy Park

MMPA also offers on-site educational tours of Faribault Energy Park. Faribault Energy Park is more than a power plant. This facility, in southern Minnesota, was built as a model of environmental responsibility and innovation. Its “Working Classroom,” designed in the observation room, hosts exhibits and provides views of the control room and steam turbine.
