Campus Wind Turbine Project

UMass Dartmouth is considering the installation of a wind turbine as part of an energy conservation plan that also includes construction of a high-efficiency co-generation plant, rooftop solar panels, and a fuel cell demonstration project. The plan is designed to advance the University's sustainability efforts, which also include major environmental research projects, new academic programs, and students organizations such as the Charlton College of Business' nationally recognized NetImpact chapter. The wind turbine project is projected to save approximately $125,000 per year in electricity costs, significantly reduce the campus' carbon footprint, and provide students and faculty with interdisciplinary opportunities for learning and discovery.
