Total energy consumption (all sources, excluding transportation fuels), performance year :
5,069,588 MMBtu

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:
2,656.70 MMBtu

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

There are several locations on campus where electricity is generated from solar power and fed into the campus grid. These are: 1) Facilities Complex Bldg # 3 (FC3) - 2) Manor Garage (MAG) - 3) Pickle Research Campus (PRC). A separate site uses solar power to produce hot water at Norman Hackerman Building (NHB).


Non-electric renewable energy generated on-site, performance year:
523.50 MMBtu

A brief description of on-site renewable non-electric energy devices:

The NHB solar thermal system is the Apricus AP-30 evacuated tube system and consists of 36 5-panel banks. The heated water goes to the reheat coils in the VAV terminal units.
