Saving Energy

Saving Energy
Sacred Heart Chapel: Payback 1.44 years (17 months); Annual Energy Savings: $1,244; 75 light bulbs replaced

Director of Sustainability Mark Murphy has identified many projects at the University that provide significant energy and cost savings. LED lamps and light fixtures were installed in some of our oldest and most ornate buildings on campus.

He investigates the integration of new technology to further reduce the University’s dependence on energy provided by fossil fuels and thereby reduces pollution. See the photos above for a slideshow of images of several buildings on campus that have recently undergone lighting redesigns.

The first photo of each building is accompanied by information on that building’s payback period (how long it took for the University to be paid back for the total cost of the project through savings in energy), as well as our annual energy savings in dollars and how many bulbs and fixtures were replaced to achieve that goal.
