• Energy Conservation and Efficiency

    Sustainability Initiative

    • Domestic water heater temperature in all campus buildings has been reduced.
    • Reflective window film was installed in two buildings on campus.
    • All renovated residence halls have been retrofitted with reflective cooled roofs.
    • Mechanical equipment needing replacement or upgrading is done using more energy efficient mechanical equipment as the need arises:
      • Wilson Hall burners were upgraded to dual fuel capability enabling the University to heat the building by oil or gas.
      • 2” air filters have been replaced with more efficient filters, saving energy and reducing labor costs because they need to be changed less frequently.
      • Occupancy sensors have been installed in a large number of classrooms to control lighting while rooms are unused.
      • Lighting in Boylan Gymnasium has been upgraded.
      • Energy saving light bulbs have been installed throughout Wilson Hall.
      • 25-watt fluorescent bulbs, instead of the standard 32-watt fluorescent bulbs, have been installed in various locations on the 2nd floor of the Student Center.
      • Exit sign lighting has been replaced with LED signs.
