Renewable energy at BCC

As national campus sustainability month kicks off, MASSPIRG Berkshire Community College students will launch a campaign to encourage BCC to generate 100 percent of their energy from renewable sources. This campaign is part of an initiative that aims to get 150 schools to commit to switch exclusively to renewable energy by 2021.

The nationwide effort includes targeted weeks of action, petition drives and direct engagement with administration officials to press for this goal. Thousands of students and faculty from every region of the country are expected to mobilize for this cause. BCC is committed to being zero waste by the end of 2020; so far 84 percent of waste is diverted from landfills through re-use, recycling and composting bins throughout campus.
