2012-2013 College and University Green Power Challenge

Throughout the 2012-13 academic year, EPA’s Green Power Partnership tracked the collegiate athletic conferences with the highest combined green power usage in the nation. The Green Power Challenge is open to all U.S. colleges, universities, and conferences. To join the Partnership, visit http://www.epa.gov/greenpower/join/index.htm.

On April 17, 2013, EPA concluded the Green Power Challenge and recognized a Champion Green Power Conference as well as the largest single green power users within each participating conference as 2012-13 EPA Green Power Challenge conference champions. The Champion Green Power Conference and individual conference champions are listed here. To be listed, a conference must have at least one Green Power Partner and an aggregate green power purchase of at least 10,000,000 kWh across the conference.

The Big 10 Conference was the Collective Conference Champion. The Ohio State University was individual champion. 23.5% of Ohio State’s power comes from green power sources.
