Center for Sustainability Education
Total energy consumption (all sources, excluding transportation fuels), performance year :
Total clean and renewable electricity generated on site during the performance year and for which the institution retains or has retired the associated environmental attributes:
A brief description of on-site renewable electricity generating devices :
Grid-tied solar panels are installed at five locations on campus: Waidner-Sphal Library, Kaufman Hall, The Center for Sustainable Living, The Quarry trellis, and Britton Plaza. Additionally, most of the electricity needed for our farm operations is generated by grid-tied pv panels. Ground was broken in February 2018 on a 3 MW solar field that will generate an estimated 5.2 million kWh/year beginning in fall 2018. http://www.dickinson.edu/news/article/3036/?utm_source=dickinsontoday&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=dickinsontoday.
Non-electric renewable energy generated on-site, performance year:
A brief description of on-site renewable non-electric energy devices:
The Dickinson College Farm produces biodiesel from waste vegetable oil.
Total clean and renewable electricity generated by off-site projects that the institution catalyzed and for which the institution retains or has retired the associated environmental attributes, performance year:
A brief description of off-site, institution-catalyzed, renewable electricity generating devices:
Total third-party certified RECs, GOs and/or similar renewable energy products (including renewable electricity purchased through a utility-provided certified green power option) purchased during the performance year:
A brief description of the RECs, GOs and/or similar renewable energy products, including contract timeframes:
