Solar Renewable Energy Credits
Washington College purchases approximately 12,391,000 kWh/year from off-site solar photovoltaics in partnership with Greenbacker Capital. That's more than 100% of our annual electric use.
As we conserve energy at the institutional and individual levels, we are simultaneously working to electrify our campus infrastructure. For instance, we plan to replace water heating supplied by district steam or oil-fired water heaters with electric. And by laying the groundwork to accommodate electric vehicles, we are taking big steps toward carbon neutrality.
