Abilene Christian University, Southwestern University, and Austin College are among the campuses that already have committed to going 100 percent renewable. In 2020, we worked with Austin Community College to get 100% renewable energy for their Elgin and Round Rock campuses. Our goal is to get every college in Texas to go 100 percent renewable.
Our organizers are working with campus communities to achieve these goals. To date, more than 350 faculty members nationwide have supported us in calling for commitments to 100 percent renewable energy—many of whom will prove to be valuable allies when we ask local and state government leaders to consider taking similar action.
To lay the foundation for this critical work, we have produced and distributed a series of reports and factsheets, including Renewable Energy 101: Ten Tools to Move Your Campus to 100% Clean Energy; spoken at conferences to students, faculty and administrators; and partnered with Second Nature, the leaders of the President’s Climate Commitments.
