South Farms were selected as the location for the wind farm. This selection was based on several factors because the wind farm had to be at least 20,000 feet away from the nearest airport (Willard Airport). Other reasons included noise impacts, shadow flicker effect to the nearest houses, and being away from the campus, etc.
Facilities and Services at the U of I was considering the installation of one to three wind turbine generators at the South Farms, which would help augment power generated by Abbott Power Plant.
