KVCC Adds Wind Turbine to Campus 

Kennebec Valley Community College is embracing wind power. Officials cute the ribbon Wednesday afternoon for the school’s new wind turbine. It’s expected to save the college $2,000 to $3,000 a year on energy costs. School officials say it’s just one of many steps being taken toward increasing renewable energy on campus. ” We have solar thermal collectors on our roof, we have this turbine now, we have collectors that we’re going to be putting on our roof later this year,” said Dana Doran, Director of Energy Programs at KVCC. The turbine provides power to the electrical lab and will be used as a teaching tool too.
