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 :
A 5.5 KW photovotaic system was installed on the WKU Office of Sustainability in Fall 2014. In calendar year 2016, the system generated 20.54 MMBtu.
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:

Electricity use, by source (percentage of total, 0-100):
|Percentage of total electricity use (0-100)|
|Other (please specify and explain below)||7|
A brief description of other sources of electricity not specified above:
Wind and solar combine to 3% of TVA's power portfolio.
TVA reports 7% energy efficiency as part of their portfolio, evidently reasoning that avoided Kwh production as a result of aggressive energy efficiency efforts must be a part of their portfolio.
Energy used for heating buildings, by source::
|Percentage of total energy used to heat buildings (0-100)|
