Paul Smith's College of Paul Smiths, N.Y., will purchase enough wind power from Community Energy Inc., a Radnor, Pa.-based wind-energy marketer and developer, to cover all of the college's electricity use.

Based on its past usage, the college expects to purchase 3,625 MWh of electricity per year - offsetting approximately 5 million pounds of carbon dioxide per year.
