Tools for Action - Campuses

Schools and colleges are natural leaders - they point their students toward the future. By turning to renewable resources to help them meet their energy needs, institutions of higher learning demonstrate commitment to their founding educational mission, assume fiscal responsibility by protecting themselves against fluctuations in the price of fossil fuels, and raise student awareness about the environmental impacts of wasteful energy consumption and the available alternatives.

Maine's private and public colleges and universities are increasingly demonstrating their commitment to environmental and economic sustainability by reducing their greenhouse gas emissions through their energy purchases.

The Maine Green Power Connection provides colleges and universities with many ways to help them make a cost-effective switch to green power. MeGPC exists to facilitate the use of green power in Maine. We educate, facilitate and congratulate Maine's green power leaders. These resources will deepen your understanding of what green power is, who is buying it, and why they have chosen to do so. More resources will be added regularly - feel free to visit often.
