As soon as this month, Georgetown University will generate over two-thirds of its energy needs from solar power applications.
University officials said the initiative is a measure to reduce the campus’s reliance on traditional grid-based utility.
For years, Georgetown University has been at the forefront of green energy. Since 2013, the university has purchased renewable energy certificates, known as RECs, which document the use of clean energy.
Moving forward, Georgetown University will source even more of its energy from renewable energy providers. It’ll buy more than 100,000 megawatt-hours of electricity each year.
The school’s overall mission is to pave the way for a brighter future that’s more reliant on green technology.
Under the agreement, electricity will be delivered from solar plants in Maryland and New Jersey and the school will continue to use RECs from other sources, too.
Georgetown University has taken other concrete steps in the fight against climate change and harmful fossil fuels. It divested from fossil fuel companies over concerns about the environment and unstable financial outcomes.
