Initiatives by the Numbers
Oregon Tech has the first geothermal combined heat and power plant in the world on a university campus and uses it to heat the entire campus.
The Solar Array installed at Oregon Tech is the equivalent to 225,150 Gal. of Gasoline Saved
Operation of the Geothermal Plants at Oregon Tech are equivalent to removing 545 Cars from the road for a year
Combined output from the renewable energy projects will exceed campus electricity use by an estimated 700,000 kilowatt hours per year. That energy will be donated to Pacific Power’s low-income subsidy program, making Oregon Tech the largest non-utility net metering contributor in the state.
