Proposals will also integrate student engagement and share best practices with other campuses to encourage replication. Applicants are encouraged to consider a variety of approaches to planning, funding, and implementing energy projects while maximizing quantifiable energy and greenhouse gas reductions on campus.
To support the Clean Energy Action Plan and further campus decarbonization, projects within any declared gas moratorium or gas constrained area and/or any projects that reduce dependence on gas supplies will be awarded additional points during proposal evaluation. Such projects may include natural gas efficiency and conservation tactics, implementation of clean heating and cooling, primary fuel switching to reduce carbon emissions, investigation of other non-pipeline alternatives, etc.
The following are examples of eligible project types. This list is not exhaustive.
Projects must be performed on systems with a remaining useful life of at least six (6) years.
