Warren Wilson College Goes 100% Green

July 2006 - Warren Wilson College, a private, liberal arts college located in North Carolina, has become the first college or university in the Southeast to offset all of its electricity use with green power. The college will purchase 4.4 million kWh annually of renewable energy certificates (RECs) from Sterling Planet, Inc. at an additional cost of $20,000 or about 0.45¢/kWh. The purchase is the result of a year-long effort by students who researched numerous REC providers, launched a successful petition drive, and worked with the college administration to get the purchase approved. A student fee of about $20 will provide the funding for the purchase.
