DALLAS, Aug. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- SaveOnEnergy.com, one of the longest-standing online energy comparison websites, is a big fan of both football and saving energy. As the college football season starts, we decided to take a look at top football universities and see how they stack up in their sustainability efforts.
We started with the Associated Press' Top 25 preseason list and designed our own criteria for ranking these same 25 schools on their green efforts. While there are many standards to choose from when examining sustainability, we examined each school's stadium sustainability efforts, campus green initiatives, environmental studies programs, number of active green organizations, waste diversion rate and amount spent on locally grown and organic food. Each category was weighted based on how significant we thought they were.
Every school was contacted in order to receive the most accurate information. If schools were not responsive, we used the information from the universities' websites, the Princeton Review's Guide to 332 Green Colleges 2014 Edition and the Sustainability Tracking, Assessment & Rating System (STARS).
Our results were quite surprising. No. 25 on the AP Top 25 preseason list ranked at the top of our list!
