Skidmore College

Renewable energy

The extraction, transportation and use of Skidmore's various energy sources have major environmental, social and economic impacts and are a major source of the college's institutional greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. As a result, Skidmore has implemented a number of small-scale and large-scale renewable energy projects to shift the college toward a more renewable energy portfolio. These projects, along with numerous initiatives that improve energy efficiency and help promote behavioral changes, have significantly reduced the college's GHG emissions.
