NU hard hat on top of solar panelsCurrently our campus consumes almost 250 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electricity annually, which results in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions equivalent to more than 60,000 passenger vehicles. Our goal is to reduce this number and continue to advance clean energy operations. Over the past couple of years, University leadership has reserved significant funding and resources to study new opportunities in this area.
