BANGOR, Maine — The Husson University Student Environmental Group will hold a series of events this month to raise awareness about wind power.
The club has constructed a small model wind turbine and placed it on the roof of the student center. The turbine is providing a source of energy so students can charge their cell phones and other devices.
The organization also will hold informational sessions about wind power in the Libra Lecture Hall in O’Donnell Commons.
Rebecca Holberton, associate professor of avian biology at the University of Maine, will talk about the impact wind turbines have on the environment at 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 11. Among the concerns she will discuss are migratory patterns of birds, habitat degradation and the effect wind turbines have on a community.
Richard Hill, professor emeritus of mechanical engineering at the University of Maine, will discuss the policy and economic ramifications of wind power at 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 18.
