Total energy consumption, performance year:
268,292.43 MMBtu

Clean and renewable electricity (report kilowatt-hours):
kWh MMBtu
Imported electricity from certified/verified clean and renewable sources (i.e., bundled green power purchases) 0 Kilowatt-hours 0 MMBtu
Electricity from on-site, clean and renewable sources (rights retained/retired) 0 Kilowatt-hours 0 MMBtu

A brief description of the certified/verified sources of clean and renewable electricity:
NJIT's electricity is powered by PSEG.

A brief description of the on-site renewable electricity generating facilities/devices:
The university has installed a 50-kilowatt solar-powered system on the roof of its new campus center, but it is not measured. An array of 160 solar panels carpets the roof, converting sunlight into electrical currents. The solar-powered system prevents 100,000 pounds of carbon dioxide a year from being released into the air. The panels also prevent the release of nitrogen oxide and mercury, two other byproducts of a coal-burning power plant.

Clean and renewable thermal energy (report MMBtu):
Clean and renewable stationary fuels used on-site to generate thermal energy 0 MMBtu
Imported steam, hot water, and/or chilled water from certified/verified clean and renewable sources 0 MMBtu

A brief description of the clean and renewable stationary fuels:

A brief description of the certified/verified sources of clean and renewable thermal energy:
Complete Turnkey 63 kW System, Roof ballasted, and the building facade BIPV system integrated with Solar Hot Water system.

Unbundled renewable energy products (report kWh):
kWh MMBtu
Purchased RECs, GOs, I-RECs or equivalent unbundled renewable energy products certified by a third party 43,800 Kilowatt-hours 149.45 MMBtu

A brief description of the unbundled renewable energy products:
NJIT bought renewable energy from ENGIE North America, a portfolio of hydropower facilities. 43,800 megawatt-hours of supply of renewable, clean generation from the Smoky Mountain Hydropower portfolio located along the North Carolina-Tennessee border. Nearly 100% of the company’s power generation portfolio is low carbon or renewable. Globally, ENGIE S.A. is a global reference in low-carbon energy and services, that relies on their key businesses (gas, renewable energy, services) to offer solutions to customers.
