Energy Efficiency and Conservation
Building meters are fitted with MelRok IoT devices, allowing us to monitor real-time building energy consumption.
Solar PV arrays are located on Garrison Fine Arts Building, Lang Art Building, and Schow Hall. Energy-efficient LED bulbs are in use throughout campus. The pool at the Sally Tiernan Field House uses a variable speed drive pump so that energy supply never exceeds demand.
