Ben McCall noted this morning that Mike Bass has approved the agreement to move forward with selling our carbon emission reductions from FY12, FY13, and FY14 to Chevy. The Contract/Agreement Routing Form (CARF) is being routed now. The actual amount of funding will depend on the number of tons of CO2e-reduction we can count. Ben is negotiating with Chevy’s representatives to exclude the increased emissions due to Petascale. Once they agree on a quantity of emission reductions, the Chevy contacts will work with Mike Marquissee in F&S to explain the UI tracking system for energy use before they will confirm the figure.
Chevy’s explanation of the program is online here: http://www.chevrolet.com/culture/article/carbon-footprint-reduction.html.
