Building a Sustainable Energy Campus
GCSU Energy Conservation Efforts
The GCSU campus has made many important energy efficiency improvements. Our work has been greatly aided by a recent statewide initiative to incorporate energy saving measures.
GCSU Facilities has been working for many years to establish cost-saving energy conservation methods.
In March 2006, the GCSU Campus Energy Use & Conservation Task Force was created by a special directive from President Dorothy Leland. The group was charged with increasing energy awareness and engaging the GCSU community in actions that can decrease our energy use and improve our operating efficiency.
The task force identified several goals to guide its work:
In November 2007, the scope of the committee was broadened, and was renamed the GCSU Green Initiative.
Campus Energy Usage
The GCSU Campus Energy Use & Conservation Task Force began in March 2006 as a special directive from President Dorothy Leland. The group was committed to increasing energy awareness and engaging the GCSU community in actions that can decrease our energy use and improve our operating efficiency.
One primary interest the task force has is to help educate the campus to improve energy efficiency through voluntary actions. In November 2007, the committee elected to broaden the scope of their work, and was renamed the GCSU Green Initiative.
Policy recommendations for Energy Conservation and Efficiency activities are currently being developed by the GCSU Green Initiative Task Force.
Energy Conservation in the Community
As an integral part of the local community, Georgia College & State University seeks to provide a model of energy efficiency for others to examine. Although we have a historical campus, we are excited about the opportunities to retrofit our buildings with the most modern energy saving solutions.
Global Implications of Your Energy Use
Recent concern about global warming is directly tied to energy use, because heating and cooling represent a great portion of the greenhouse gas emissions. By saving energy, we will be saving future citizens from devastating environmental changes that may flood their economy with unnecessary costs.
Doing the right thing by saving energy today not only saves us money, but it saves our wildlife, our sensitive environments, and our spiritual connection to the natural world.
