Energy & Infrastructure
To achieve our goal of carbon neutrality by 2020, Hotchkiss has made green infrastructure a top priority. While we’ve increased our building square footage by one-third in the past few years, overall energy use on campus has decreased by nearly 20 percent.
Where We Get Our Energy
- 35 percent of our electricity comes from wind power.
- 95 percent of our heat and hot water comes from a wood chip-powered central heating facility, which equals about 40 percent of our overall carbon footprint.
Many of Hotchkiss’s state-of-the-art facilities reflect our commitment to sustainability.
