CSU to Build Wind Project

April 2007 - Colorado State University (CSU) announced plans to develop a wind energy project to serve its entire electricity load and provide a large-scale outdoor laboratory for students and researchers. The project, to be located on 11,000 acres of university-owned land in Northern Colorado, would generate a minimum of 65 megawatts (MW) with the potential of up to 200 MW. At peak demand, CSU currently uses about 16 MW of power. CSU hopes to begin construction of the project within two years. In 2004, CSU became one of the first universities in the nation to offer residence hall and university apartment students the option to purchase wind energy.
