Energy Transition Plan

The Energy Transition Plan was adopted by the President and Board of Trustees in April 2012.

The proposed Energy Transition Plan is available at the Office of the President's website.

A major component of the Plan is to provide a means of sharing historical and current information about actual usage of electricity, steam, water and natural gas.  The theory is that with this knowledge, members of the Campus community will modify their consumption behavior to (presumably) reduce consumption, or to shift consumption to off peak periods.

An effort towards this goal is the installation of smart meters on the electrical, steam, water and natural gas services to each building.  The smart meters provide real-time usage data.  Along with a major project underway to install smart meters at various buildings, additional meters will be included where applicable on Capital Projects. 

The Utility Meters reference page shown under Related Content should be followed by all those involved with Capital Project estimating, design and construction activities.
