Southern New Hampshire University's (SNHU's) green power purchase is part of a 15 year power and renewable energy certificate (REC) renewable hedge negotiated with Iberdrola's Maple Ridge Wind Farm. The hedge is based on 6.2MW of Maple Ridge capacity expected to provide 17,500,000 kWh per year on average. The wind hedge is designed to both hold SNHU's net annual energy budget at a $2.5 million dollar level for 15 years, and at the same time to provide RECs equal to all of SNHU's carbon emissions from electricity and natural gas.
