College President Pushes Conservation While Taxpayers Pay $30K A Year In Energy Costs For Her House
Michigan Capitol Confidential ^ | 8/30/2012 | Tom Gantert

University of Michigan President Mary Sue Coleman has said her college needs to be a global leader when dealing with energy sustainability.

Yet, Coleman's own university provided residence has the most expensive energy costs among state universities, both in total costs and cost per square feet, with a gas-electric-steam bill reaching nearly $30,000 in one year.

When receiving a grant for "sustainablity fellows" from Dow Chemical last year to help people "live cleaner, greener and sustainably," Coleman said: "[This partnership] is broad and comprehensive as sustainablity itself, and frankly, I believe it is the only way to solve problems as pervasive as the ones that we are facing in protecting our natural world."

But Coleman’s own electricity, gas and steam bill has varied from $19,448 to $29,807 between 2010-12. That bill was $22,591 in 2012, or $1.61 per square foot. DTE estimates its average residential electrical and gas rates are $2,160 a year.

Typical, “I’m better than the rest of you peons” attitude from a libtard elitist in turd filled academia.
