A happier valley

The world is becoming more energy efficient, and the Penn State community should remain competitive in the face of growing global trade. We should be a model for other universities in aspects of green electricity and sustainability.


Problem statement

Problem Statement

Natural resources are depleting and we must create other ways to power our lives.

The future is in our hands.


We are penn state

We Are Penn State.

What is the biggest building on campus?

How can we make it better?

How will we succeed in doing this?

What effects will this have on the Penn State community?


What is the biggest building on campus

What is the biggest building on campus?

Beaver Stadium which holds 106,000 people and uses about 10,000,000 kWh of energy per year.


How can we make it better

How can we make it better?

Have Beaver Stadium run on clean energy made from wind turbines.


How will we succeed in doing this

How will we succeed in doing this?

Penn State's campus has 192 acres of land and an average wind speed of 14mph. Setting up a wind farm

should be no

problem.


What effects will this have on the penn state community

What effects will this have on the Penn State community?

Penn State will become a beacon of energy sustainability which will inspire others to go green.


What effects do wind turbines have around the world

What Effects Do Wind Turbines have around the World?

A 1 megawatt turbine will annually contribute to the displacement of emissions of gas: 1,600 tons of Carbon Dioxide, 9 tons of Sulfur Dioxide, and 4 tons of Nitrous Oxide

The use of wind turbines will reduce the production of smog, acid

rain and greenhouse gases.

The production of wind turbine energy uses

less than .167% the amount of water per kWh of

electricity produced by nuclear power and .2% water

that electricity produced from coal uses.

Wind turbines have no adverse effects on the environment

around them unlike fossil fuels which add to air pollution.


Implementation

Implementation

Beaver Stadium uses about 10,000,000 kWh of energy per year. With only 4 wind turbines the stadium could become self sufficient.


Cost analysis

Cost Analysis

1 MW turbine 1.3-2.2 million dollars produces about three million kWh of energy per year.

Four turbines can power this project.

Tax cuts make this cost efficient in the long run

After 16.7 years the turbines will pay for themselves in what money they save.


A happier valley

The average wind turbine will last anywhere from 20-25+ years.

The wind turbine will overall save Penn State at least $1,739,592.52, without taking into account the tax deduction savings from the wind turbine.


Conclusion

Conclusion

The use of wind turbines in powering Beaver Stadium will make Penn State a greener campus by cutting down the use of non-renewable resources used and it will cut the costs of powering Beaver Stadium in the long run.
