The answer, my friend, is buying up the wind, as the University has agreed to make the nation’s largest retail purchase of wind-produced electric energy. Penn will purchase 20 million kilowatt-hours a year from Community Energy, Inc., which represents the output of five wind turbines at Exelon-Community Energy Wind Farms in western Pennsylvania. That amounts to 30 percent of the farms’ total energy output, and will satisfy five percent of the University’s annual energy needs.
