RICHLAND, Wash. (AP) - A new building at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory will help the lab study how to integrate wind power into the power grid.

Director Mike Kluse says construction is scheduled to start in April on the $10 million building on the lab’s campus in Richland. It will house a control room simulator that operates with live grid data.

Although the national lab has lost staff in recent years of tight budgets, The Tri-City Herald reports ( ) it still employs 4,300 people and spent $936 million on research in the last fiscal year.
