Whirlpool is working with One Energy to put up three wind turbines that will provide 20% of their energy costs. This project is due to be complete in early summer. With these turbines comes a “park” space under each and a $5,000 scholarship for a local STEM student with each one.
Whirlpool has recently begun manufacturing on a new “lintless” dryer. This new line allowed for 300 new jobs to be created which carries quite an economic impact.
