Total energy consumption, performance year:
1,065,175.61 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) 8,521,000 Kilowatt-hours 29,073.65 MMBtu
Electricity from on-site, clean and renewable sources (rights retained/retired) 0 Kilowatt-hours 0 MMBtu

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

All energy purchased from a local source is 25% renewable. CMU has solar panels which supplement the purchased and generated energy on sunny days, but this data is not measured.


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

The Education and Human Services building houses CMU solar panels. They provide energy which replaces purchased and generated non-renewable energy on sunny days, with an innovative design created by Mike Walton- CMU director of Energy and Utilities.
