Efficiency Efforts Lead to Funding
In August 2009, WNC President Carol Lucey signed a document committing the college to increasing energy sustainability and making campuses carbon neutral. Efforts to maintain this commitment are already paying off.
The recent sustainability project to retrofit the heating and cooling system in the Bristlecone Building at WNC Carson City will yield an annual electrical savings of 182,350-kilowatt hours, or roughly $21,000. An additional $9,000 in annual natural gas savings is projected.
Furthermore, NV Energy presented the college with an incentive check totaling $15,216 on Monday, March 26. The funds offset a portion of the costs associated with purchasing and installing the new system, and enable the college to prepare the unit to be operable this summer.
