WWU Trustees Confirm Green Power Purchase

June 2005 - The Western Washington University (WWU) board of trustees confirmed the university's intent to purchase 100% of its electricity needs from renewable energy sources. In spring 2004, a WWU student initiative on renewable energy passed with 84.7 percent approval. The student initiative included a maximum fee of $19 per quarter for full-time students to support a renewable energy purchase. On June 10, the board capped the student fee at $10.50 per quarter. The fee is expected to generate $355,000 per year or enough revenue to purchase approximately 35 million kWh of renewable electricity in the 2005-06 school year at a rate premium of 1¢/kWh. The green power will be purchased from Puget Sound Energy.
