Walla Walla Community College Renewable Energy Park

Walla Walla Community College

In 2015, Walla Walla Community College completed installation of three small-scale wind turbines on campus. In total, the project has a capacity of 32 kilowatts and can generate roughly 25,000 kilowatt-hours per year - enough to power at least two average Washington homes.

The wind turbines will be used to educate the community about distributed wind and provide hands-on training to students in the College’s Energy Systems Training program, which prepares students to work in the region’s growing wind energy sector.  In addition to creating a valuable demonstration and learning opportunity, the three wind turbines will help reduce operating costs on campus.
