In addition, the College prints as much as possible on a new fleet of RICOH, energy-star certified, multi-function devices and in an on-site print shop, all of which is now powered 100% by solar power. For those documents that must be printed for external audiences, the College's primary off-campus printer is Hadley Printing in Holyoke, MA, which sources 50% of its power from hydroelectricity: https://www.hadleyprinting.com/environment.html
