Total energy consumption, performance year:
111,522.99 MMBtu

Clean and renewable electricity (report kilowatt-hours):
kWh MMBtu
Imported electricity from certified/verified clean and renewable sources (i.e., bundled green power purchases) 610,691.20 Kilowatt-hours 2,083.68 MMBtu
Electricity from on-site, clean and renewable sources (rights retained/retired) 876 Kilowatt-hours 2.99 MMBtu

A brief description of the certified/verified sources of clean and renewable electricity:

CSUDH receives all of its electricity from Southern California Edison (SCE) which has a published clean energy content label of 36%. Extrapolating to the total kWh consumption by CSUDH, this would mean 36% of its purchased electricity (6,106,291.2 kWh) is from verified renewable energy sources (https://www.sce.com/sites/default/files/inline-files/2018SCEPCL.pdf)

A brief description of the on-site renewable electricity generating facilities/devices:

The Net Zero Innovation Center is a net zero energy site, with all solar produced from its 3000W of panels (approximately 6570 kWh/year assuming 6 hours of production 365 days per year) being stored in on-site batteries and used to keep the structure off-grid.

Clean and renewable thermal energy (report MMBtu):
Clean and renewable stationary fuels used on-site to generate thermal energy 0 MMBtu
Imported steam, hot water, and/or chilled water from certified/verified clean and renewable sources 0 MMBtu
