Biomass, Green Energy & Green Building

We have set an ambitious goal of being carbon neutral by 2020. Through a combination of renewable energy generation, conservation, and offsets connected to student learning, we scrutinize our energy use. Though our building square footage has increased by one-third in the past several years, we have been able to see reductions in our overall energy use by almost 20 percent. Our new Woodchip Central Heating Facility is a state-of-the-art classroom where students can learn about renewable energy.
