Addabbo speaks to Rockaway students about wind turbines and clean energy

New York State Senator Joseph P. Addabbo, Jr. was invited to speak to the sixth grade class at Channel View School for Research on Thursday, January 25, about wind turbines and the planned windfarm off the shores of Rockaway.

The students gave a presentation on how wind turbines generate clean energy and demonstrated the effectiveness of different types of turbines. They then got the chance to ask Addabbo questions about the windfarm that is expecting to come to their neighborhood by 2030.

“It was great to see that the sixth graders at Channel View are so interested in these wind turbines and the importance of clean energy,” said Addabbo, who is a member of the NY Senate Environmental Conservation Committee. “All of their questions were well thought out, and I am proud to have these young inquiring minds as my constituents. Pretty soon they will be leading the way in innovation and bringing New York State into the forefront of clean, renewable energy.”
