Total energy consumption (all sources, excluding transportation fuels), performance year :
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:
A brief description of on-site renewable electricity generating devices :
ESF has five photovoltaic arrays (114 kw total) on its main campus and research/experiment properties.
Non-electric renewable energy generated on-site, performance year:
A brief description of on-site renewable non-electric energy devices:
ESF has biomass boilers at two of its satellite properties (Ranger School, Adirondacks; Heiberg, Tully).
Total clean and renewable electricity generated by off-site projects that the institution catalyzed and for which the institution retains or has retired the associated environmental attributes, performance year:
A brief description of off-site, institution-catalyzed, renewable electricity generating devices:
Total third-party certified RECs, GOs and/or similar renewable energy products (including renewable electricity purchased through a utility-provided certified green power option) purchased during the performance year:
A brief description of the RECs, GOs and/or similar renewable energy products, including contract timeframes:

Additional documentation to support the submission:
Electricity use, by source (percentage of total, 0-100):
|Percentage of total electricity use (0-100)|
|Other (please specify and explain below)||0|
A brief description of other sources of electricity not specified above:
1- Other sources = oil, less than 1 percent.
2- See NOTES below: "electricity use by source" is interpreted as meaning the grid mix, or "Generation Resource Mix" for electricity for our general region (eGRID, NYUP).
Energy used for heating buildings, by source::
|Percentage of total energy used to heat buildings (0-100)|
|Other (please specify and explain below)||---|
A brief description of other sources of building heating not specified above:
Update February 2017
- Purchased Steam, from natural gas, accounts for 68.9% (at the source)
- Nat gas on site (CHP): ~23.4%
- Numbers are based on "source" energy units. Site-source conversion factors provided by EPA's Energy STAR "Quick Converter" , available online.
Percentage of total energy consumption from clean and renewable sources:
