Thanks for posting this article! I graduated from a Big 12 school not too long ago and it is amazing to see how quickly universities have adopted conservation and sustainability for their campuses. I'm sure this will ripple out to every educational institute very soon.

I believe that Wisconsin also has a major energy reduction plan in progress. I think it is something like UCLA's.

It's great to cheap discount levitra see colleges step up with energy reduction plans, and renewable energy solutions. I'd also like to know about their current energy mix. 31% from green power is great, but if the remaining 69% is from coal it would be far worse than a school (say WSU), that gets the majority of its power from non-fossil fueled hydro power.
