Metric: Total Purchased Clean Energy

This metric represents the total clean energy used on campus each year, in megawatt-hours (MWh/year). It only includes clean energy actually used on campus, so we kept and retired the Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs). It also includes thermal energy from the solar thermal panels at the Activities Recreation Center and biomass from the Energy Farm, translated from BTUs to MWh.
