EIU plans new energy research center


CHARLESTON, Ill. (AP) -- Eastern Illinois University is planning to break ground this fall on a new building for its Center for Clean Energy Research and Education.

School spokeswoman Vicki Woodard says the building's cost is expected to be more than $1 million. It's expected to take about a year to finish construction.

The 4,300-square-foot building would be adjacent to Eastern Illinois' new Renewable Energy Center on the east side of the campus.

The school plans two public meetings to talk about its plans for the new center. The meetings are June 6 and 13 at the Charleston Public Library.
