Western Kentucky University Trims Electricity Usage

The program, offered through the local power company, pays up to $200 for every kilowatt saved. Western Kentucky retrofitted or replaced more than 70,000 lights in 35 campus buildings, which will result in a savings of more than 4.7 million kilowatt-hours per year. The school also replaced three HVAC chiller units, which provide cool water for air conditioning. In all, the school invested more than $9.6 million in energy saving measures, with a guaranteed energy savings of more than $1 million each year.
