The Clean Energy Fund @ The University of Vermont
The Clean Energy Fund was created in response to students’ vision of the University of Vermont (UVM) running efficiently on a fraction of its current energy needs, powered by clean, locally produced renewable energy that fulfills both the University’s needs and supports the local economy.
The mission of the Clean Energy Fund is to finance new clean energy projects on the UVM campus and beyond. The source of the fund is a student fee dedicated to clean energy projects; this dedicated fee is part of a comprehensive fee that UVM collects each semester from full-time undergraduate and graduate students.
The Clean Energy Fund (CEF) was approved in May 2008 by UVM's Board of Trustees. A $10 per semester student fee supports the fund, generating about $225,000 annually. The CEF first gained momentum as student-led intiative in 2005, and was endorsed by the Student Government Association in 2007, after a randomized survey of 419 students showed that 68 percent would pay $10 per semester for the development of clean energy on the UVM campus.
