Fort Hays State University (FHSU) plans to install two wind turbines to supply electricity for its Kansas-based campus.

According to FHSU, the Vestas-supplied wind turbines will be operational by late June, with an anticipated energy saving of $600,000 to $1 million. The final cost of the project was estimated at $8.8 million to $9 million.

Vestas will produce blades, towers and nacelles at its Colorado manufacturing facilities. Additionally, FHSU is nearing an agreement with Longview, Wash.-based PNE Corp. for turbine installation.

To coincide with the project, FHSU is also planning a renewable energy-related education program and will explore alternatives to export excess electricity.
