College of Science Energy Challenge
In February 2009 the College of Science challenged the Main Building to a year-long energy conservation contest. The College competed for the glory of achieving a greater percentage energy reduction than the Dome. Half of all the College’s electricity savings will go towards funding energy related undergraduate research projects.
After one year of implementing energy saving measures, both the Main Building and the College of Science achieved reductions in energy usage. In the end, the Main Building was victorious in attaining 11.9% total energy savings over the College of Science 4.3%.
