As stated in the Environmental Stewardship Action Plan, JMU will:

Assess the feasibility of obtaining 25% of JMU’s energy from renewable sources by 2025

  • Study the feasibility of using select alternative fuels and technologies to supply renewable energy to campus

Develop a plan to reduce campus electricity consumption

Develop a plan to reduce fossil fuel consumption by university vehicles and mobile equipment 


Examples of our progress:

  • The Wayland Hall renovation project, which is LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental
    Design)- Platinum certified, received a 2012 Green Innovation Award (Best Green Institutional Project -
    Adaptive Re-use Category) from the Virginia Sustainable Business Network. The hall’s energy conservation
    designs are projected to save the University 4.2 million kBTUs annually, enough energy to provide electricity
    to 105 homes.
