Clean and renewable energy from the following sources::
Performance Year
Option 1: Clean and renewable electricity generated on-site during the performance year and for which the institution retains or has retired the associated environmental attributes 0 MMBtu
Option 2: Non-electric renewable energy generated on-site 0 MMBtu
Option 3: 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 0 MMBtu
Option 4: Purchased third-party certified RECs and similar renewable energy products (including renewable electricity purchased through a certified green power purchasing option) 0 MMBtu

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

Emory has several small solar panels outside of the Few and Evans Residence Halls, which are used to power a pump, which pumps water from an underground cistern into the hall waste water system for toilet flushing. The power generated is not measured, however.

Emory was recently granted permission by Georgia Power's Advanced Solar Initiative to build three solar installations on building rooftops. The total energy production is estimated to be almost 300 kW of energy, but are not included in this report because they will be installed in 2014. http://news.emory.edu/stories/2014/05/er_advanced_solar_initiative/campus.html?utm_source=ebulletin&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=EmoryReport_EB_060314

Emory does produce on-site renewable energy, via six, 70-watt solar panels outside of the Evans and Few Residence Halls. Unfortunately these panels are not metered and produce too little energy to meet the standards for this credit.

The power consumption reported includes electricity and natural gas and is for our fiscal year 2012 (Sept 1 2011-Aug 31 2012).
