Community College wins grant to install wind turbine  

The Massachusetts technology Collaborative has awarded Cape Cod Community College a $2.4 million grant to install a wind turbine. The 600 kW turbine is expected to provide a net savings to the college of $850,000.

“Cape Cod Community College has been a leader in the community in regard to energy and environmental issues,” said Senate President Therese Murray, D-Plymouth. “This MTC grant will allow Cape Cod Community College to continue its proactive efforts in these areas and at the same time continue to be a great partner in the community.”

The grant will also allow CCCC to pay a fixed price per kilowatt hour for turbine-generated electricity that will be paid to MTC. The savings CCCC sees will be shared with MTC’s Low Income Energy Assistance Network. The LEAN program works with other energy programs and provides benefits to low-income populations in the area including on-site housing improvements for energy efficiency.

“This grant creates the opportunity for increased renewable energy in the region, while allowing for important educational opportunities for the students at Cape Cod Community College,” said Sen. Robert O’Leary, D-Barnstable. “Collaborating on this project with the MTC enables Cape Community College to persist in its dedicated effort to transform into a ‘green campus.’”

The Massachusetts Technology Collaborative administers the state’s Renewable Energy Trust. The Trust has funded more than 1,500 clean energy projects across the state including wind, solar, hydroelectric and other renewable energy technologies.

“Working closely with Senate President Murray and Sen. O’Leary, we are making great strides to build a cleaner energy future for Massachusetts,” said Massachusetts Technology Collaborative Executive Director Mitchell Adams. “This wind turbine will provide clean electricity for the college and generate revenues to support low-income ratepayers through the Low Income Energy Assistance Network.
