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

The University of Louisiana has built a 1.1 MW solar generation facility that operates behind the meter on campus. The facility generates approximately 1,280 kWh/year. The university consumes all the electricity generated and does not feed electricity back to the grid. The university owns the right to all renewable energy credits. The system came online in June 2018.

A brief description of other sources of electricity not specified above:

Other is from the MISO fuel mix reports, which is part of the energy supply purchased by our local utility, LUS. MISO does not specify what other refers to specifically. This is the fuel mix the parts of campus served by LUS. It excludes energy used at the Ecology Center and Cade Farm, which each have different utilities but account for a very small percentage of campus energy use.
