Question

How are projects selected?


Proposals are reviewed by the Bucknell Green Fund Committee and campus energy manager Steve Durfee. They have oversight responsibility and final governance for project approvals.

The Green Fund itself is sustainable — savings from approved projects are reinvested in the fund, and then more projects are funded.
