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

In 2015, the College purchased a ELEX GEM fully electric truck through the Student Campus Greening Fund. The truck is housed in the solar garage constructed by students in the REED program. The vehicle is charged by a 3.8kW 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 vehicle is used for farm chores, such as harvesting, planting, and bringing food to the farmer's market and is available for use by the REED department for miscellaneous tasks and by the sustainability department for hauling compostable food scraps and carrying out waste diversion for end-of-the-year Green Move Out.

The college also operates a DS Electric Club Car and a Cushman Hauler 1200x used by the facilities department for routine travel and light hauling around campus for maintenance related projects.

Green Mountain College has a solar level 2 charging station located on the main campus. 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.
