Ever wonder how much energy we use as a campus? You can track energy usage at St. Lawrence University using our energy dashboard.
The dashboard displays electricity consumed by the University in real time and allows you to compare it to historical electricity use. Other features include comparing different buildings on campus, learning the electricty used per person, and translating electricty use into pounds of cabon dioxide emissions.
As outlined in the Climate Action Plan part of our strategy to reach carbon neutraility includes switching to renewable, non-fossil fuel energy. In April 2017, St. Lawrence's commitment to green energy was recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Green Power Partnership.
Wind Power: From 2009 to present, St. Lawrence University has purchased Renewable Energy Certificates (RECS) for wind power.
Hydroelectric Power: In 2015 St. Lawrence entered into a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) to purchase clean hydroelectric power from the Kings Falls Hydro Facility in Lewis County, NY.
