Chevrolet Selects University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point for Renewable Energy Partnership
Oct 22 14
Chevrolet has chosen to partner with University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point (UW-Stevens Point) and a handful of other institutions of higher education that undertake energy-efficiency and renewable-energy projects. As part of a voluntary carbon reduction initiative, it is buying and retiring carbon credits from colleges that have reduced greenhouse gas emissions to permanently benefit the environment. The credits will not be used to offset emissions related to specific Chevrolet operations or products at any site. UW-Stevens Point was considered because its performance ranks among the top 15% of universities in the nation for energy conservation. Greenhouse gas emissions have declined at UW-Stevens Point since switching from coal to natural gas at the heating plant. Chevy looked at emissions of all on-campus fuel combustion, except vehicle fuels, for a period of time following a 2007-2011 baseline. In fiscal year 2012, UW-Stevens Point consumed no coal. The Chevy carbon reduction project uses an average reduction over several years. It calculated UW-Stevens Point reduced emissions on average by 10% annually. The campus will receive an estimated $30,000 to $35,000 for its carbon credits, which will be reinvested in additional energy-savings projects. One possibility being considered is a wind turbine demonstration.
