According to a student newspaper, the installation of two 2.1 MW wind turbines would "reduce the University's energy consumption by one third, equivalent to a cut of 72,000 tonnes and £8.1 million".  How does that work, then?

How would the turbines reduce consumption, as opposed to meeting demand? Is it expected that overawed students will congregate to watch the huge shiny, spinny things for hours on end, thereby reducing usage of electricity?

And 72,000 tonnes of what? 'Energy'? Incinerated kittens?
