Clean Energy Committee: Clean Energy Committee Hearings

3:00pm - 4:50pm
Evans Hall 3201A - Conference, Evans Hall 3201B - Conference

The Clean Energy Committee is excited to share the opportunity to fund campus sustainability projects at the Evergreen State College. As a member of the Evergreen community, you have a great opportunity to cultivate your ideas into applied solutions with the intent of reducing greenhouse gas emissions and conserving natural resources. All that is required is a little ingenuity, determination, and thoughtful planning.

In 2005, students at Evergreen voted on the Clean Energy Initiative, which led to a self-imposed fee of $1 per credit for renewable energy purchase, research, education and installation. Since then, the students have been purchasing renewable energy credits to offset 100% of the electricity consumed by the college. The remaining funds are available to support on-campus clean energy and resource conservation projects.

Eligible projects for funding must fall into one of the following categories:

  1. Research into renewable energy and conservation technologies that will contribute to advancement of sustainability practices and academics on campus
  2. Implementation of projects intended to save energy, produce electricity or conserve resources
  3. Demonstration and education projects that share sustainability strategies with the campus community

Hearings are held twice a quarter to allocated funds. More information and application instructions are available at
