Growing numbers of colleges and universities are making the leap to renewable energy. Some are not only saving money--they're making money on their renewable energy purchases. This guide, written by two energy consultants, walks readers through the process of evaluating the various technologies, ownership options, relationships with utilities, and financing strategies. Citing numerous, in-depth case examples in higher education, this text shares the innovative solutions that have worked for colleges and universities around the country. Appended are: (1) Selected Colleges and Universities with Renewable Energy Investments; (2) Renewable Energy Certificate Retail Products; (3) Retail Green Power Product Offerings; (4) Sample Request for Qualifications for On-Site Solar Photovoltaic System Installers; (5) Sample Wind Power Purchase Agreement; (6) Sample Agreement for Interconnection of Wind Turbine Generator with Utility; (7) Information Resources; and (8) About the Sponsors.
