Getting the Green Light -- and Heating and Cooling

Albright replaces outdated lighting with compact fluorescents whenever possible.

Facilities is eliminating older T12 lighting and improving lighting with T8 lamps with electronic ballasts, thus using less wattage per room.

Facilities works to keep heating and cooling equipment at peak performance for energy savings. As older equipment is retired, it is replaced with state-of-the-art energy efficient equipment.

The campus Energy Management Controls System allows for monitoring and set-back of space temperatures, allowing a reduction in consumption.

Conventional flush valves in toilets are being replaced wherever possible with water-saving sensors.
