Renewable energy purchase agreement
U-M finalized an agreement to buy renewable energy through DTE Energy that will result in about half of the purchased electricity for the Ann Arbor campus coming from Michigan-sourced wind energy. Construction of the wind farm is expected to be complete in spring 2021.
Bicycle friendly university
In October 2019, U-M was recertified as a Bicycle Friendly University in recognition of the institution’s achievements in promoting and enabling safe, accessible bicycling on campus.
Emergency ride home
U-M offers an Emergency Ride Home program to support sustainable commuting. The program provides free 24/7 taxi rides up to 6 times per year for various emergencies, including personal or family illness or injury, unscheduled overtime or other mandatory work-related holdover, or stranded carpool or vanpool riders.
