As part of a peer-to-peer green building dialogue, the Green Building Alliance (GBA) hosted three visitors from Russia throughout late April into early May 2015. Each of the visitors possess an extensive background in environmental studies including sustainability, recycling, and city planning. As part of this program, the Russian guests received a private tour of EverPower’s Highland Wind Farm and even got to explore the inside of a wind turbine. After partaking in this eye-opening experience, the leaders of the GBA hope to offer similar tours to all members of the GBA in the future.
