Total energy consumption, performance year:
4,733,834.82 MMBtu

Clean and renewable electricity (report kilowatt-hours):
kWh MMBtu
Imported electricity from certified/verified clean and renewable sources (i.e., bundled green power purchases) 0 Kilowatt-hours 0 MMBtu
Electricity from on-site, clean and renewable sources (rights retained/retired) 67,995 Kilowatt-hours 232.00 MMBtu

A brief description of the certified/verified sources of clean and renewable electricity:

None for FY20


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

Generation from three solar PV systems installed across campus including the roof of the Wisconsin Energy Institute and the Gordon Dining & Event Center. Generation data from all systems are metered at the inverter.


Clean and renewable thermal energy (report MMBtu):
MMBtu
Clean and renewable stationary fuels used on-site to generate thermal energy 0 MMBtu
Imported steam, hot water, and/or chilled water from certified/verified clean and renewable sources 0 MMBtu

A brief description of the clean and renewable stationary fuels:

None for FY20


A brief description of the certified/verified sources of clean and renewable thermal energy:

None for FY20


Unbundled renewable energy products (report kWh):
kWh MMBtu
Purchased RECs, GOs, I-RECs or equivalent unbundled renewable energy products certified by a third party 0 Kilowatt-hours 0 MMBtu

A brief description of the unbundled renewable energy products:

In FY20, the State Department of Administration (DOA) maintained agreements with two providers across the State to supply RECs to support ~10% of electricity purchases. The State allocates the costs of those RECS to each entity proportionally (based on total energy usage) resulting in 41,708,204 kWh from WPPI Energy and Wisconsin Public Service programs. Both of these programs are not a utility certified program nor are they known to be certified as Green-e or equivalent) which is why this is not reported above because it not from a utility certified program nor are they known to be certified as Green-e or equivalent.

There are a few small solar water heaters used on campus (cataloged on page 112 here: https://fpmcpla.wiscweb.wisc.edu/wp-content/uploads/sites/20/2017/10/Appen-4-Utilities-Master-Plan-2016-1019-low-res.pdf). These units are not individually metered so accurate data on their production is not available and not reported above.
