University of Delaware Sells Wind Energy For College Scholarship

Posted: Updated:

LEWES, Del. - At Delaware's Coast Day, it was announced that energy credits from the wind turbine on University of Delaware's Lewes campus will be sold to Delaware Municipal Electric Coop.  The three-year-old turbine typically creates enough energy to power 5,000 homes for an entire year.  It's currently being used to power the Lewes campus.

In addition to buying the energy from the university, Delaware Municipal Electric Coop will also create a graduate scholarship at the Sussex County Campus, which includes the College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment.

"We're happy to do this.  Number one, it's great to buy renewable energy credits from a wind source right there in Delaware, and two, it's our privilege and honor to fund a UD fellowship," says Patrick McCullar, President of Delaware Municipal Electric Coop.
