Ted Rollins and Campus Crest Communities, today announced a partnership with SolarCity, a national leader in clean energy products and services, to install more than 9,000 solar panels on its student housing communities located in Greeley, Colorado; Flagstaff, Arizona; and Las Cruces, New Mexico.

Offset electricity consumption by approximately 50 percent
Eliminate over 80 million pounds of annual carbon dioxide emissions, the equivalent of taking approximately 7,000 cars off the road for a year.

Ted Rollins, CEO of Campus Crest Communities, and Andrew H. Young, Vice President and head of Campus Crest’s sustainability initiative said, “Sustainable living is central to our company philosophy and business practices, and we are pleased to findthat our residents are equally as passionate about the concept. Shifting consumption towardsclean energy will further our mission to be a leader in regenerative practices by using renewablesources to limit carbon emissions and reduce overall energy costs, which in turn allows us toprovide our residents with cleaner, more energy efficient housing.“This is a great start to our broader commitment to alternative energy and global regeneration,and clearly demonstrates that if you are thoughtful, you can balance economics withenvironmental and social agendas to create a thriving company. We continue to push our People& Planet initiatives across our platform, and across our industry-leading residence lifeprograms.” “Campus Crest is showing future generations there are better energy options available by giving students access to renewable power,” said Toby Corey, Chief Revenue Officer at SolarCity. “It’s possible for many housing developers to pay less for solar electricity than they pay for utility power and pass on the benefits of clean power to their tenants— SolarCity has completed more than 100 solar projects for housing developments in the U.S.” Said Josie Plaut, Director of Projects for the Institute for the Built Environment and
