Ohio State University has signed a letter of intent with Iberdrola Renewables to purchase 50 MW of wind energy from Iberdrola's Blue Creek Wind Farm, located in Van Wert and Paulding counties.

According to Ohio State, the purchase equates to approximately 25% of the entire electricity load at the Columbus campus and is one of the single largest purchases of actual renewable energy by any university in the country.

The university continues to develop and implement plans to achieve its sustainability goals, including the creation of a campus culture that embraces sustainability.

In addition to being one of the largest North American wind purchases by a non-utility purchaser, the 20-year purchase agreement will also create new opportunities for research between Ohio State and Iberdrola Renewables.

The university says the partnership will help extend the wind energy research already being performed at the university, including rotor blade design and optimization, gear design, environmental analysis and noise optimization.
