Sustainable Energy Initiative



The WCU Sustainable Energy Initiative is a committee of students, faculty and staff advisers that are responsible for allocating money towards the implementation of renewable energy, energy efficiency improvements, research, and internships on campus.  The committee's annual operating budget comes from a self-imposed student fee of $5 per student per semester. Every SEI Project Proposal must clearly demonstrate these two goals:

  • Project relation to sustainability
  • Educational value to student(s)
