University of Wisconsin-River Falls Plant

From Global Energy Monitor

The University of Wisconsin-River Falls has a physical plant that uses coal. In 2009 Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle backed off a 2006 campaign promise that River Falls, as well as the University of Wisconsin’s Oshkosh and Stevens Point campuses, be energy independent by 2012 after determining it was not practical as proposed. The campuses continue to burn coal to heat and cool their buildings. The goal now is to require them to cut their carbon dioxide emissions to the level of those produced by their 2005 electricity consumption.[1]
