Across the U.S., organizations, businesses and universities, including Cal State Fullerton, are pushing the boundaries of sustainability and developing the capacity to generate electrical power with renewable and alternative energy sources. State law and a California State University executive order require CSU campuses to reduce energy consumption and set goals for energy independence and the procurement of renewable energy. Advanced energy management systems and emerging technologies increasingly support off-grid electrification through stand-alone systems. An overview of Cal State Fullerton's sustainability and energy independence efforts also will be discussed.
