Wesleyan University Goes Green

November 2001 - Wesleyan University, a private liberal arts and sciences university located in Middletown, Connecticut, announced plans to purchase power generated from renewable sources to supply the annual power needs of the Freeman Athletic Center, which accounts for about 10% of total campus power requirements. The decision followed a student-led, campus-wide campaign to encourage the green power purchase.

Beginning in 2002, the university will purchase 2.1 million kWh annually through the Connecticut Energy Cooperative, a member-owned, non-profit green power marketer. Student members of the Campus Greening Forum raised the $1,500 required for cooperative membership, while the university administration will cover the $40,000 annual cost of the renewable energy purchase.
