OP-6: Clean and Renewable Energy
|1.05 / 4.00||
Total energy consumption (all sources, excluding transportation fuels), performance year :
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:
A brief description of on-site renewable electricity generating devices :
We have a small wind tower and several solar panels on campus. We measure their production using our Lucid Dashboard.
Non-electric renewable energy generated on-site, performance year:
A brief description of on-site renewable non-electric energy devices:
Total clean and renewable electricity generated by off-site projects that the institution catalyzed and for which the institution retains or has retired the associated environmental attributes, performance year:
A brief description of off-site, institution-catalyzed, renewable electricity generating devices:
Total third-party certified RECs, GOs and/or similar renewable energy products (including renewable electricity purchased through a utility-provided certified green power option) purchased during the performance year:
A brief description of the RECs, GOs and/or similar renewable energy products, including contract timeframes:
The State of Wisconsin purchases all electricity consumed in state-owned facilities. In 2005, Act 141 passed and required 10% of all electricity to come from renewable sources by the end of 2007, and 20% of all electricity to come from renewable sources by the end of 2011, if economically feasible. During the 2017 Fiscal Year, the state purchased 977,321,952 kwh of renewable energy RECS. The UW-System allocates this energy purchase to each campus based on local electrical energy use. UW-Platteville's FY17 allocation was 2.01% of this state total, or 19,659,718 kwh (67030.02 mmbtu).
