Data source(s) and notes about the submission:
Wesleyan's spend changes annually. It depends on the replacement cycle and what we need in the data center. Our data center equipment purchases have gone down considerably as we have continued to virtualize and move to the cloud. Network storage systems do not have the same EPEAT rating system applied to them and are not included in the annual spend number here. 100% of spend on copiers, administrative capital computing, and academic affairs technology were on EPEAT Gold products. 29% of spend on classroom capital computing was on EPEAT Gold products.
