HMU is "powered" by wind energy.
Thanks to the student fee- funded purchase of 616,000 kilowatt- hours of wind energy per month which is the approximate usage of the Hobson Memorial Union. Bemidji State University is now the largest Ottertail Power Company wind energy customer in its tri state region.
Even though the electricity we use in the Union- for lights, computers, etc.- is not coming directly from Ottertail's turbine, through our purchase we are supporting efforts to reduce pollution caused by conventional sources of energy.
It's just one way BSU is striving to be a better environmental steward.
Here's a quick look at what the Union has to offer including a listing of HMU's tenants.
Who do you ask when you don't know which way to go? The map!
