AEI Receives Grant for Renewable Energy Project

Filed under: Education,Wind Energy — Tags: , , , , , , — admin @ 3:56 pm

The  Alternative Energy Institute (AEI) has received a grant award of $497,350 from the State Energy Conservation Office for the installation of two renewable energy systems that will help reduce energy consumption at the University.

Funding for the grant is provided through the federal American Recovery and Reinvestment Act through a statewide program designed to increase the amount of installed renewable energy at public facilities in the state of Texas and help reduce utility costs and save tax dollars. The grant will help fund a $622,000 solar and wind electricity project to install a 48 kilowatt (kW) photovoltaics (PV) system at the University’s Palo Duro Research Facility and a 50 kW wind system for the feed mill at WTAMU’s Nance Ranch.
