Description

The iCAP 2020 objective 2.3.1 is to "Use at least 140,000 MWh/year of clean power by FY25." This objective is about clean power, which is different from clean thermal energy. The responsible campus unit for championing this objective is F&S.

As of 2020, there are three types of clean power options being pursued or used on campus.

  1. Solar Energy on Campus: installing solar photovoltaic panels on campus property
  2. Wind Energy on Campus: installing wind turbine generators on campus property
  3. Power Purchase Agreements for Clean Energy: purchasing solar or wind power from off-campus
