Carnegie Mellon to Purchase Wind Power

May 2001 - In what is being billed as the "nation's largest single retail purchase of wind energy," Carnegie Mellon University, a Pittsburgh-based research university of about 7,500 students, announced plans to buy wind power to meet 5% of its annual electricity needs. Beginning next year, the university will purchase approximately 4.8 million kilowatt-hours of wind energy annually under an agreement with green power marketer Community Energy. The power will be supplied from the 15-megawatt Mill Run wind project now under construction 40 miles southeast of Pittsburgh.
