In 2006, Green Mountain College became the first campus to be powered in part through investment in Central Vermont Public Service’s Cow Power program (Now Green Mountain Power after the merger), through which the utility delivers energy created from burning biogas created from cow manure on Vermont dairy farms. The College committed to buying 50 percent of its main campus electric usage from Cow Power and 100 percent on most other accounts, which include The President's House, the Dean's House, Griswold AC, Williams House, the Barn, Feick Center, Richardson House, Soccer field, and Two Editor's Inn.
