The Environmental Protection Agency has named St. Thomas the top user of green energy among schools in the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference in 2014-2015.
St. Thomas was ranked No. 19 on the Environmental Protection Agency’s Green Power Partnerships top 30 list among colleges and universities nationwide.
The $15,000 grant given this summer allowed biology students to analyze Lake Como, which has an excess amount of phosphorus stored in the lake’s sediment.
This is St. Thomas’ third consecutive annual award for using the most green power of any college or university in the MIAC.
