Other Schools Using this Model

Many other colleges and universities have established successful green funds, including the Carleton College Sustainability Revolving Fund, the University of Vermont Clean Energy Fund, the Harvard Green Campus Loan Fund, the Macalester College Clean Energy Revolving Fund, and the University of Michigan Energy Conservation Measures Fund.

The Green Revolving Investment Tracking System, or GRITS, tracks all project history as well as projecting future benefits.

How are projects selected?

Proposals are reviewed by the Bucknell Green Fund Committee and campus energy manager Steve Durfee. They have oversight responsibility and final governance for project approvals.

The Green Fund itself is sustainable — savings from approved projects are reinvested in the fund, and then more projects are funded.
