UMMS Going Green

Posted On: Thursday, July 19, 2018 Posted By: Jennifer Shimer Tags: blog, new employee

As part of the university’s commitment to sustainability and energy efficiency, UMMS has established a thirty year agreement to pay for up to 12 megawatts of solar-generated power from arrays being developed by First Wind, Major Energy, Greenhouse Solar and Hecate Solar in Massachusetts. The first of the three projects, a 2.5-megawatt facility in Palmer, started producing electricity in December. This commitment to sustainability is projected to save a third of its current energy costs, an equivalent of $715,000 annually.
