A brief description of other sources of building heating not specified above:

Performance year is FY 2013. Electricity percentages based on on-campus biomass production and off-campus New England grid sources. Heating numbers based on MMBTUs produced by three heating sources: woodchips, #6 heating oil, and #2 heating oil. The Killington campus is included in these calculations for both electricity and heat. Given that the credit asks only for heat, propane used for cooking is not counted here.

Total acreage includes the Poultney and Killington campuses, but does not include the 85-acre Dean's Preserve, which is off-campus and is used primarily for research purposes.
