Community Invited to Renewable Energy Focus Group Meeting at FSU  

The public is invited to attend an informative meeting about the possibilities of wind and solar energy in Western Maryland during a Renewable Energy Focus Group meeting at 5 p.m. Jan. 18 in the FSU Compton Science Building, room 226.

The event is organized in conjunction with a project funded by the Maryland Energy Administration ( MEA ) and directed by Dr. Oguz Soysal, chair of the physics and engineering department at FSU, which recently secured external funding from the MEA that will allow the University to build a demonstration system with a 35-45 ft. wind turbine and photovoltaic solar panels to supply energy to a small building on the FSU campus. The purpose of the project: to develop interdisciplinary curriculum and educational outreach programs that will explore the possibilities of harvesting wind and solar energy in Western Maryland. Additionally, FSU will also administer the Maryland State Anemometer Loan Program, which supplies anemometers ( wind meters ) to residents interested in installing them on their properties. The program will also enable Frostburg to develop first-hand experience with technical, economic, and environmental and administrative issues residents might face through the construction and operation of wind power systems.

For more information about FSU’s solar-wind energy project, please contact Dr. Soysal at ( 301 ) 687-7079 or e-mail osoysal@frostburg.edu.

FSU is committed to making all of its programs, services and activities accessible to persons with disabilities. To request accommodations through the ADA Compliance Office, call ( 301 ) 687-4102, TDD ( 301 ) 687-7955.
