The wind farm set to go up on Purdue’s campus is stalled.
The company, Performance Services, is halting the project while it looks for new sources of revenue.
Mitchell Martin is an assistant dean in Purdue’s College of Agriculture.
He says the timeline is unknown, but the project has not and will not affect the work the university is doing on the site.
The project was expected to cost around $200-million.
The plan is to put up about 60 wind turbines, 17 of which would be located on Purdue’s research land.
Martin says the space is still being used for research.
