Partner Profile
Randolph College is a liberal arts college in Lynchburg, Virginia, that partnered with 4 other institutions and the Council for Independent Colleges in Virginia (CICV) to purchase green power from a company specializing in landfill gas recovery. Randolph purchases about 5 million kWh of green electricity per year through a contract that locked prices for a period of 12 years, which allows the College to accurately plan its energy budget from year to year and to avoid surprises that sometime arise when rates jump. This budget-friendly feature was a big factor in the decision to switch over to green power, but was not the only reason. The College was really keen to put its mouth where its words are and to help pave the way for other organizations and individuals who want to purchase green power in the State. Additionally, students who attend Randolph College can visit the power facilities and learn about career opportunities in the field.
