16 Campuses Recognized as Top Partners in Green Power

August 8, 2016

Sixteen colleges and universities have been named to the Top 100 Green Power Partners by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). These campuses totaled 1.727 billion kWH, or approximately 6 percent of the green power consumed by the top 100 users.

The institutions use mostly solar and wind energy, though several employ a variety of resources including bio-mass and small-hydro plants. Renewable energy accounted for 15 percent to more than 100 percent of the total electrical power consumed at these institutions.

Organizations can meet EPA partnership requirements by using any combination of three product options: renewable energy certificates, on-site generation, and utility green power products.

The higher education insitutions on this year's list include:

  • University of Buffalo, the State University of New York (32/100)
  • University of Pennsylvania (35/100)
  • Georgetown University (48/100)
  • Carnegie Mellon University (51/100) 
  • The Ohio State University (53/100)   
  • University of Oklahoma (54/100) 
  • Northwestern University (55/100)   
  • Oklahoma State University (62/100)   
  • Drexel University (63/100)        
  • University of Tennessee, Knoxville (68/100)                   
  • University of Wisconsin (84/100)   
  • University of Maryland (87/100)  
  • The City University of New York (89/100)
  • University of Utah (91/100)       
  • Ohio University (95/100)       
  • University of Missouri (98/100)  

The EPA also released a separate list honoring the 30 higher education institutions that use the most green power of all campuses. Current and past higher education partnerships are noted on this EPA web page.
