App State Programs & Initiatives
NRLP is regularly involved in community and Appalachian State University events and initiatives promoting sustainability, including participation in App State's Earth Day Celebration, providing funds for the annual Tree Campus USA tree planting, and attending the REI's Fall and Spring Forums.
Renewable Energy Projects On Campus
NRLP partnered with Appalachian State University's Renewable Energy Initiative (REI) to help fund the Broyhill Wind Turbine on App State's campus. NRLP provided over $200,000 in support of the project which is located on Bodenheimer Drive near App State's baseball field.
The wind turbine is situated at the highest point on campus and has become the iconic symbol of Appalachian's commitment to sustainability. The turbine can be spotted from many locations around downtown Boone and is one of the largest wind turbines in the state.
NRLP has also assisted in the installment of solar panels on the Appalachian State campus.
LED Cart Program
The LED Cart is operated out of the Office of Sustainability and funded by NRLP and Facilities Operations for the purpose of increasing and promoting energy efficiency and cost savings in offices and buildings on the App State campus.
App State faculty and staff who are interested in having the LED Cart stop by their department to replace incandescent and CFL bulbs from office lamps can contact NRLP or the Office of Sustainability for more information.
