Clean Energy Grant funding IVCC wind test tower

Posted by wlpo on May 25, 2010

Add Illinois Valley Community College to the list of schools considering wind energy.  The college is receiving a $30,000 grant for a wind feasibility study.  It’ll include a 150-foot test tower that will see if it’s worth putting up a turbine.

The grant is through the Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation and will cover 75% of the cost.  The college will need to pick up the rest of the $40,000 project.

They want to put the test tower south of the college barns as part of phase one of the project.

If a wind turbine is feasible, a second phase will follow.
