This is a feasibility study of Dartmouth's Renewable Energy propositions. This study analyzes the carbon offsets of implementing a 13 MW solar PV system at Oak Hill. This study used the Energy Database to calculate the carbon emissions of the college for 2010 (the baseline year) and 2018. It also projected carbon emissions for the year 2025 assuming the Oak Hill solar PV system is implemented as outlined and the biomass plant is implemented with similar fuel ratios to nearby biomass plant projects. It was found that Dartmouth should sufficiently make its carbon emissions reductions goals for 2025.
