Wind will power University of Kansas library

Wind will generate the electricity needed next year to power the University of Kansas' Anschutz Library. The Student Environmental Advisory Board this month began buying wind power credits from Westar Energy to offset fossil fuel power to the library. That group spearheaded a Student Senate initiative in 2007 to reduce the campus' dependence on unsustainable energy. The measure, which was approved by more than a 90 percent margin, calls for students to pay $1.25 a semester toward the goal of KU obtaining 20 percent of its energy from sustainable sources by 2020 - cjonline.com
