Duquesne University Named to EPA’s List of Top Green Power Users
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has named Duquesne to its Top 30 College and University List of Green Power Users for the first time at No. 28. The University earned the national recognition by using more than 18 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) of green power annually, which is enough green power to meet 38 percent of its electricity use. According to the EPA, this number of kWhs is equivalent to avoiding the carbon dioxide emissions from the electricity use of nearly 2,000 average American homes annually.
