Energy Projects

Emissions generated as a result of energy consumption (including both electricity and heating/cooling) represent the majority of Wesleyan's greenhouse gas emissions. To neutralize these emissions, we are working to:

  • Reduce energy use as much as possible through conservation and efficiency, and individual behavior changes.
  • Generate our own energy from renewable energy sources.
  • Promote behavior change through programs like Eco Facilitators, Do It in the Dark, and Wes to Wes.
