Welcome to Green Mountain College's energy dashboard.
The purpose of this interactive dashboard is to raise awareness of energy usage on campus. Green Mountain College has invested in a centralized wood chip heating plant that both generates electricity and efficiently heats the campus. Energy meters have been installed in strategic locations on campus to meter building energy usage. This interactive dashboard is a window into how energy is produced and used on campus.
Touch areas of the screen to browse from page to page. Explore the dashboard to see which buildings use the least energy. Compare one building's energy usage to another. You can even monitor live building energy usage - switch off lights, dryers, computers, etc and watch how this affects energy usage!
The idea for this energy dashboard stemmed from student interest, and the dashboard was partially funded through a $10,000 Student Campus Greening Fund grant.
