A brief description of the institution’s efforts to support alternative fuel and power technology in its motorized fleet:

In 2013, we installed a level 2 charging station next to Dunton Hall, so that any electric vehicles we procure may be charged. The charging station is also open to the community and free for community members to use. It is listed on several public charging station maps available online. In 2012, students in the REED program built a solar garage, equipped to charge a solar truck when we acquire one for the fleet. The charging unit is powered by a 3.8 kW roof-mounted array, and the space is heated by a passive heat system consisting of a south-facing glass wall and a concrete heat slab.

The sustainability office and athletics department are working with the Vermont Clean Cities Coalition to explore options for switching some vehicles in the fleet to fully electric, hybrid, CNG, propane or biodiesel in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
