NYU Replaces Petroleum with Wind Energy

October 6, 2006 § 3 Comments

John Saxton, President of New York University, whom I have had the pleasure of dining with, has announced that NYU will be reducing energy costs by acquiring a large number of kilowatt hours of wind energy:

“The university purchased 118 million kilowatt hours of wind energy and will be replacing 100 percent of its current petroleum energy supplied by Con Edison. The plan will be a mix of “national wind” produced by wind farms in the Western part of the country and “regional wind” by the State of New York, Crain’s New York Business reported.” (UPI)

    I think it is a step in the right direction, and I hope this trend picks up.

    I’m sure it will if the service is sustainable.

  • Wind Products typically aren’t favored due to the size of the wind turbines. However, the bigger the tower, the bigger the turbine. Small Economy Wind Systems are available for small DIY projects.

    As Wind Energy slowly is starting to be recognized, more and more Wind Farms are being created. Help the environment and yourself!

    Wind Products are the newest edition to Silicon Solar alternative energy product line with several wind turbines, wind mills and complete wind systems to choose from, you can find them here at http://www.siliconsolar.com/wind-energy-products.php
