The Excellence in Energy Awards recognize energy consumers who demonstrate a strong commitment to the planning and achievement of their environmental and community goals. Since 2008, when the College started a plan to conserve energy, our CO2 emissions from energy usage have gone down by over 20% and energy use overall has been reduced by over 30%.  

Executive VP of NRG Energy, Inc., Robert Gaudette, said, “We want to celebrate our customers for their efforts in enhancing their energy solutions. Each award shows how organizations are creating a more sustainable path for both their operations and communities.”
