$1 Million Energy Reduction Award

The OSU Energy Conservation Program, now the OSU Energy Management Program, is a campus-wide initiative that began in July 2007.

Based on reduced energy usage from July 2007 - February 2013, a number of OSU buildings on the Stillwater campus hit the $1 million mark in energy savings. It was decided then that special recognition was warranted for this major accomplishment. Energy managers worked with OSU Marketing, now Brand Management, to develop a design for a special award. As of April 2020, eleven buildings have earned this status and have been presented with the $1 Million Energy Reduction Award.
