In February 2010, Luther officially adopted an Energy Conservation Program. A $45,000 grant from the Rocky Mountain Institute funded the creation of the program. The creation of the program developed with consultants from Sebesta Blomberg. Through innovative programming related to energy conservation, we hope to reduce energy consumption two percent per year through behavior change and will continue our work on energy efficiency (three percent per year), as well as larger projects like the wind turbine, biomass project and building improvement projects.
Use these energy conservation tips to help us reach our goals!
Luther has watt meters available to check out to any student, faculty, or staff member that desires to use one. By plugging it into a wall outlet where you have another electronic device plugged in, you can measure the amount of electricity used.
Watt meters can be checked out from the Library Circulation Desk for two weeks at a time.
