May 2003 - The University of Wisconsin (UW) Oshkosh has become the first Wisconsin university to make a green power purchase commitment. At least 3% of the university's electricity needs, totaling nearly one million kilowatt-hours annually, will be provided through Wisconsin Public Service (WPS) Company's NatureWise product, which is sourced from a combination of wind and biomass resources located in Wisconsin. Chancellor Richard H. Wells called the agreement with WPS "a continuation of our commitment to a 'clean' environment."
