Lighting survey reaches main complex
For the next two weeks, the ongoing campus energy efficiency survey is going to be looking up. Looking up at lighting, that is.
Representatives from the contractor hired by Honeywell will be all over campus working to make sure we get the most from every lumen. You'll see them today, Tuesday, April 10, in Molinaro Hall and later in Wyllie Hall, the Rita Tallent Picken Regional Center for Arts and Humanities, and the Sports and Activity Center.
The potential savings identified could be substantial; as much as 20 percent or more. The analysis provides details on specific opportunities for savings and the value associated with each individual energy conservation measure.
These energy conservation measures will not require the campus to spend any of its own money to implement. All costs incurred for this project on campus will be paid out of the state funding program. In addition, the savings will be verified by the state and guaranteed by Honeywell. That means, UW-Parkside is improving energy efficiency with budget neutrality and guaranteed savings.
We also will investigate the viability of various renewable energy opportunities-- wind, solar, geothermal, and biomass--on campus. UW-Parkside will evaluate not only the environmental and social impact but also the fiscal impact of renewable sources on the campus.If you have any questions or comments, contact Facilities Management Director Don Kolbe at ext. 2232 or access email@example.com by email.
