VLS Green Revolving Fund

Vermont Law School’s Green Revolving Fund will prioritize projects on campus that lead to energy and resource savings that will be reinvested in the fund; at least 75 percent of the savings from these projects will be reinvested into the fund. The fund was initially established through a $200,000 private donation and a $50,000 allocation from the Board of Trustees. A committee of campus stakeholders will be formalizing the procedures and policies for management of the fund and developing a list of eligible campus projects. One of the initial projects that the fund will help finance is a solar-powered electric vehicle charging station.


The higher education participants in The Challenge are managed by Second Nature. To learn more about how Second Nature plans to expand use of GRFs in higher education, visit their page!
