CSU Offers Students Wind Energy Choice

April 2004 - Colorado State University (CSU), a land-grant university located in Fort Collins, CO, will offer students living in university residence halls a wind power purchase option. CSU, with an enrollment of 25,000 students, is believed to be the first university in the nation to allow on-campus residents to choose wind energy.

Beginning in the fall of 2004, the approximately 5,000 students living in residence halls will have the option to purchase 100% wind energy for their rooms at a cost of $17 annually. The typical residence hall student uses about 1,600 kWh of electricity during the nine-month school year.

Students will receive a wind power flyer in packets to be mailed in the summer and will also have the opportunity to sign up for wind power once they arrive on campus. The wind power will be supplied by Fort Collins Utilities through its Wind Power Program.
