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:
0 MMBtu

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

In 2012, we produced approximatively 8.298 MMBtu in from a small solar installation on one of our residence halls, and in 2013 that unit produced 4.135 MMBtu. However, the solar energy production unit stopped due to damage to the equipment.
