El Centro College
There’s only one wind farm in Dallas County, and it’s on the rooftop of El Centro College. The 40 wind turbines were installed at El Centro in mid-April. Students, faculty and administrators participating in Earth Day activities on April 21 watched the startup of the turbines. “These turbines should have a life expectancy of 25 to 30 years, and they will generate enough power to run approximately 2,000 computers that we have in our labs on the main campus,” said David Browning, vice president for business affairs at El Centro.
