Wind turbine plans for university

Lancaster University
There are nine colleges in total based at the site

Wind turbines could soon be powering Lancaster University after it received a £5m cash boost to reduce carbon emissions.

The proposals consist of two 2.3MW turbines on the university's Hazelrigg site to the east of the M6 motorway.

If installed, they would be able to produce enough electricity to meet the requirements of all students who live on campus.

A series of public exhibitions will be held as it goes out to consultation.

The Higher Education Funding Council for England awarded the grant, with the sole purpose of transforming the way universities use energy.

There are eight undergraduate colleges and one post graduate college at the university which houses more than 7,000 students.
