RELEASED: November 19, 2009

DANVILLE, KY—This week, the National Wildlife Federation (NWF) issued a report titled "Generation E: Students Leading for a Sustainable, Clean Energy Future." In the report, 165 different U.S. colleges and universities are profiled because of their students' efforts to create a sustainable future.
The report highlights the unique and critical role college students are playing in reforming sustainability programs that lower their campuses’ carbon footprints, and Centre College's student-initiated Green Fund effort is included in the report.
These funds help subsidize the station's production of electricity which is much cleaner but more expensive to generate than that created at coal-powered plants.
This isn't the only time Centre students have been recognized for their sustainability efforts. Recently E.ON., the parent company of Kentucky Utilities and Louisville Gas & Electric, presented Centre and its students with the company's favorite non-residential customer award for students' efforts with the Mother Ann Lee Hydroelectric Station.
