Energy savings net $13,264 check for Colleges
and University Housing Services
Colleges and University Housing Services
has received a $13,264 check from Pacific Gas & Electric
(PG&E) as part of an energy-saving partnership.
The amount represents 50 percent of the total
refund of $26,528 earned by upgrading existing lighting to more
energy-efficient fixtures. CUHS will receive the balance upon
completion of the project later this month. The energy-saving
project is a cooperative effort of CUHS Facilities, Physical
Plant and Dining Services.
In addition to the rebate, CUHS will continue
to realize significant returns as energy costs decline, along
with the added benefit of conserving resources.
Funding for the program comes from a $12
million PG&E grant to the University of California and California
State University campuses. UCSC was the first UC or CSU campus to receive payment under
the program. (See earlier Currents
