CLEAN Campus Program Released

The CLEAN Campus approach results in lower transaction costs and burdens for all parties, which translates into lower electric rates.

Craig Lewis

The Clean Coalition is excited to introduce the CLEAN Campus Program, aimed specifically at streamlining renewable energy procurement procedures for communities which do not have control over wholesale electricity purchases or their local electricity grids. CLEAN Campus Programs are based on CLEAN Programs, which have proven to be the most effective type of renewable energy procurement policy in the world.

CLEAN Campus Programs can be employed by cities, counties, school districts, and other organizations which control their properties and purchase energy from an investor owned utility (IOU). Companies interested in increasing on-site use of renewable energy and reaping the associated benefits can also adopt CLEAN Campus Programs. Key features of CLEAN Campus Programs include pre-identified project sites, streamlined transactions, and on-site electricity consumption. In contrast to the request for proposal approach to clean energy transactions, the CLEAN Campus approach results in far lower transaction costs and burdens for all parties, which translates into lower electric rates.
