Purdue's Board of Trustees on Friday (Feb. 4) permitted the university to pursue leasing land as part of a 60-turbine commercial wind energy park to create and enhance Purdue research and educational opportunities for Indiana students.
The project of the university, Purdue Research Foundation, General Electric Co. and Performance Services Inc. is proposed for Purdue's Animal Sciences Research and Education Center (ASREC) and adjacent private property. The location was selected for its ideal wind conditions.
