|0.01 / 4.00||
Total energy consumption (all sources, transportation fuels excluded), performance year:
Clean and renewable energy from the following sources::
|Option 1: Clean and renewable electricity generated on-site during the performance year and for which the institution retains or has retired the associated environmental attributes||1,412.25 MMBtu|
|Option 2: Non-electric renewable energy generated on-site||0 MMBtu|
|Option 3: 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||0 MMBtu|
|Option 4: Purchased third-party certified RECs and similar renewable energy products (including renewable electricity purchased through a certified green power purchasing option)||0 MMBtu|
A brief description of on-site renewable electricity generating devices :
The MCV Campus Steam Plant has a 6.6 KW solar panel array on the south-facing side of the plant’s stack.
A 163 kW solar array on the N Parking Deck.
A 179 kW solar array on the West Broad St Parking Deck.
A 1.2 kW solar array at the PPD Admin Building.
A 2.4 kW solar array at the School of Engineering West.
A 2.4 kW solar array at Larrick Student Center.
A 1 kW wind turbine at the Pollak Building.
A brief description of on-site renewable non-electric energy devices:
A 50 gallon Solar Thermal hot wA ater heater supplies water to Ginter House and a 750 gallon Solar Thermal hot water heater supplies 40% of the water to Shafer Court Dining Center, the main dining hall for the Monroe Park Campus. There is an evacuated glass tube solar thermal installation at Grace St Housing.
A brief description of off-site, institution-catalyzed, renewable electricity generating devices:
VCU had no off-site, institution-catalyzed, renewable electricity generating devices during this reporting period.
A brief description of the RECs and/or similar renewable energy products:
We are purchasing clean energy from Dominion for the PPD Admin Building totalling 80, 849 kWh for FY2014
