Additional documentation to support the submission :

- Delaware state-wide Electricity Sources provided by US Energy Information Admin: http://www.eia.gov/state/?sid=DE#tabs-4

- Renewables for Total Electricity Sources are estimates. The total % of electricity provided was split evenly between solar & hydro power. This is because the EIA.gov website does not provide a clear definition and data for "Other Renewables". Available spreadsheets of background data cover wind power only for DE, and there is not enough wind generation in DE to register in their report.

- Energy Used for Building Heating as an estimate only. UD is in the process of installing sub-meters across campus, so accuracy will increase in future reports.
