Due to its on-site clean energy systems, the University of Minnesota Morris is now fully carbon neutral in electricity. The campus was recognized in 2019 by Environment America as producing the most on-site electricity per student in the United States. About 60 percent of campus power is generated by two U of M-owned wind turbines. There are several solar photovoltaic systems that provide additional green electricity. There is also a back-pressure steam-turbine at the biomass gasification plant.

The Morris campus worked with Otter Tail Power Company to reach the carbon neutrality goals. Some 70 percent of campus electricity comes from renewables.
