Ever-Green Energy announced that the College of Saint Benedict, the University of St. Thomas and the University of Minnesota Morris have been selected for the organization’s Roadmap to Carbon Neutrality program. These institutions will receive free energy planning services as part of this pilot program.
Ever-Green Energy launched the Roadmap to Carbon Neutrality program to help campus leaders create actionable plans to make their sustainability and carbon neutrality goals a reality. Higher education institutions were invited to apply for the program in December 2018, outlining their goals and the work they have done to date on advancing their energy infrastructure and campus programming.
The three institutions will work with Ever-Green Energy over the next year to map out plans, evaluate feasibility and lay out next steps.
Bryan Herrmann, vice chancellor for finance and facilities at the University of Minnesota Morris, said the campus was proud to be a clean energy leader in Minnesota and the nation. “We have a strong shared interest and urgency with Ever-Green Energy when it comes to integrating new technologies to achieve carbon neutrality, and we look forward to working with them on a detailed plan as we strive to be carbon neutral by 2020,” said Herrmann.
