UW-RF study looks at wind power possibilities
Is there enough strong, steady wind at the university's Mann Valley Lab Farm in the town of Troy to justify building commercial turbines that could supply half the campus's energy needs?
That's what a study underway will show. The report is due by Dec. 1.
Mike Stifter, UW-River Falls director of facilities management, says the idea was spurred by the university's off-the-grid energy goals. That not only means being more self-sufficient but using sustainable energy sources.
