Energy Policy, Guidelines and Practices
This policy was established in August 2007 to be the joint responsibility of the Board of Regents, campus administration, faculty, staff and students. Success is based on cooperation at all levels.
Guidelines are provided for individual responsibilities on campus, along with energy-saving operation of HVAC equipment, thermostats, heating equipment, lighting and water usage.
Every person is expected to be an "energy saver" as well as an "energy consumer." Follow these best energy practices on in university buildings and in campus housing to reduce energy consumption and costs.
