Connecticut College Thinks Green

May 2001 - The Board of Trustees of Connecticut College unanimously approved a student measure calling for the College to purchase as much as 20% of its power needs from renewable energy sources. The move was spearheaded by the student body, which petitioned to raise student activity fees by $25 to pay the additional cost of purchasing the green power. The power will be purchased from the Connecticut Energy Cooperative, a Hartford-based, non-profit electricity provider that offers EcoWatt, a 100% renewable, Green-e certified power product.

As a result of the purchase, the entire Connecticut College community will have access to all cooperative products and services, including reduced lifetime memberships for their private use. Connecticut College has an enrollment of 1,670 men and women from 43 states and 59 countries.

News Release - Connecticut College is 1st College to Buy Green Power from the Co-op
