Additional documentation to support the submission:

The university has the following additional renewable energy projects that are not being counted above because they were completed in partnership with our district non-profit utility that is currently keeping the renewable recs but is not selling or trading them:
- A solar research field - an engineering school project - electricity generated feeds a parking garage
- 1 MW of urban solar - district utility owned - is within one mile of campus
- Off-campus 1 MW wind turbine and one 250kW wind turbine that are tied to school of engineering research
