University of Minnesota Morris achieves carbon-neutral campus electricity

Campus power is now being generated by two 1.65MW wind turbines, solar photovoltaic systems and a back-pressure steam turbine

The University of Minnesota Morris has announced it has achieved its carbon-neutrality goal for its campus electricity.

The majority of campus power, about 60%, is now being generated by two University of Minnesota-owned 1.65MW wind turbines while additional green electricity is generated by solar photovoltaic systems and a back-pressure steam turbine.

The campus uses about half of the wind-generated electricity and the other half supplies the local power grid.
