Energy Solutions

Achieving Carbon Neutrality requires effort on many fronts. The 2008 climate action plan called for a stronger focus on energy efficiency, a switch to low and no carbon energy sources, and a continued push toward behavior change and the practice of energy conservation. 

The climate action plan also recognized that Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) and carbon offsets would be a part of our equation for achieving carbon neutrality.  With the installation of LED lights, solar arrays, and a co-generation turbine in the central heating plant, as well as the purchase of carbon offsets, read more about Bowdoin’s energy solutions below.
