Turbo power

7th May 2010 at 01:00
Wind turbines have been installed at Sheffield City College as work on its new pound;60 million building continues

The three 15-metre high roof- mounted turbines, along with solar panels, will feed power to the new tower block, while a display will let students and staff see how much energy is being generated. Julie Byrne, executive director of the college, said: "Sustainability has been a key element of the design process of this exceptional building and will reduce the running costs, educate learners and staff in energy use and conservation and promote the college as a forward-thinking organisation."
