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

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

A brief description of off-site, institution-catalyzed, renewable electricity generating devices:

A brief description of the RECs and/or similar renewable energy products:

Wisconsin Act 141 directs the Department of Administration (DOA) to set goals for the use of renewable energy by the six state agencies that consume the great majority of electricity purchased by the state. One of these agencies is the University of Wisconsin System. "The individual agency goals shall be designed to accomplish the overall goal that, by the end of 2007, 10% of the electricity purchased by the state be derived from renewable resources and, by the end of 2011, 20% be derived from renewable resources."

The DOA disperses the renewable energy it purchases to the state institutions in purchases on behalf of. The RECs for the UW System schools are dispersed proportionally based on previous year usage.

However, we can not validate that these credits are certified so are not claiming them.
