Eppley Wind Project


Campus Recreation Services, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Facilities Management



This project, a collaboration between Campus Recreation Services, the Department of Mechanical Engineering, and the Department of Facilities Management, investigated the feasibility of a small scale wind turbine commercial application on the University of Maryland campus. Student research determined that installing wind turbines on Eppley Recreation Center was not economically feasible, and the project was stalled. Grant funds were returned to the Sustainability Fund to be allocated to future year's projects.
