Pitt on Top 30 Green Powered Universities List (July 2020)

Pitt ranks #30 among the largest U.S. university green power users!

The University of Pittsburgh once again joined the Top 30 Colleges and Universities list as one of the largest green power users.  As of July 2020, Pitt was #30 on the largest green power universities list.

The list reflects the Top 30 higher education institutions within the EPA’s Green Power Partnership who purchase and/or generate large volumes of renewable electricity. Pitt became a U.S. EPA Green Power Partner for the first time in 2019, made the Top 30 list in July 2019, and provides annual updates on its electricity and renewable consumption to EPA.

Fellow Pittsburgh university Carnegie Mellon University ranked #10. Find the full list here.

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) generates the Top 30 Colleges and Universities list quarterly, which causes slight ranking fluctuation.  EPA also also measures the highest green power usage in the nation for many sectors.
