Green and White Considers Going Green(er)
Michigan State University developed a draft strategic plan to steer the university to a more energy-efficient future. The Energy Transition Plan is the result of more than a year's work by a twenty-four member committee of students, faculty, and staff. Elements of the plan include energy conservation, sustainable energy research and development, using the campus as a learning laboratory for demonstrating new technologies, and making MSU an educational leader in sustainable energy. The campus currently has two solar arrays with a geothermal system under construction. The plan was voted upon and approved by MSU's Board of Trustees at its April 13th meeting. One of the elements is for 40% of the MSU energy to come from renewable resources by 2030.
