EPA Recognizes Stanford as Top Green Power User among Pac-12 Conference Schools

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has recognized Stanford as an Individual Conference Champion of the 2016-17 College & University Green Power Challenge, for using more green power than any other school in the Pac-12 Conference. Stanford beat conference rivals by using more than 154 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) of green power, representing 53% of the school’s annual electricity usage. Because a quarter of remaining electricity procured from California's grid is also renewable, 65% of Stanford's total electricity supply comes from renewable sources. Read more.
