Wind turbines on state-owned land generated more than $1 million in lease revenues last year.
The Washington state Department of Natural Resources said the leases help pay for construction of kindergarten to 12th-grade schools across the state.
There are 108 turbines on state-owned lands generating about 191 megawatts of energy.
The turbines are in Benton, Kittitas, Klickitat, Walla Walla, Garfield and Columbia counties.
