Using Utility-Scale Renewable Energy: Greensburg Wind Farm Class 5: 7.8 mps at 50 meters 9.1 mps at 85 meters • 12.5 MW (ten 1.25 Suzlon turbines) • About 4,000 homes • Kansas Power Pool is the purchaser • Greensburg receives the renewable energy credits for their usage • Funding through USDA, John Deere Renewables, and Native Energy

  15. Using Distributed Renewable Energy • Several ground source heat pumps on commercial and residential buildings • Photovoltaics on four buildings • 50-kw wind turbines at school, hospital (two), John Deere, and Best Western 7 kW Photovoltaics (roof, top right) on Sunchips Business Incubator Drilling geothermal wells at the Courthouse 2 kW Photovoltaics for GreenTown Eco-Silo Home

  16. Making Change Last: City Policies • Completed City RE policies • Interconnection agreement • Net billing policy • Wind ordinance • Solar ordinance • Detailed white paper on wind turbines in residential areas • Green Building Program • MOU with Kansas chapter of National Association of Home Builders • Training for Green Building Professionals held Nov 4-6, 2009 in Wichita; two Greensburg representatives attended • NAHB offered to train two Certified Raters to work in the area • Adoption of energy-efficient building codes (IECC 2009) – nope.
