Electricity We Generate

In partnership with Cascade Meadow, Rochester Public Utilities (RPU) has purchased, installed and maintains two wind turbines and three photo-voltaic (solar power) arrays at the science center. One of RPU's key goals at Cascade Meadow is to demonstrate a range of market-ready renewable energy technologies.
