Carleton College has installed two wind turbines in order to reduce our carbon footprint. Our second turbine, which is connected directly our the campus power grid, will supply 25-30% of our electricity needs and reduce our carbon footprint by 10%. In addition, we are trying to make our buildings more energy efficient by performing energy audits with our local energy company. These two projects are just the beginning for Carleton College’s plan to become carbon neutral by 2050 as outlined by our Carbon Action Plan.
