In the wake of the state's energy crisis, California State University Chancellor Charles B. Reed updated the CSU Trustees today (Jan. 24) on energy conservation programs at the CSU and recent initiatives in response to the current crisis.
"Long before the current energy crisis, the California State University had a history of taking great efforts to minimize energy use and implement conservation programs," said Chancellor Reed. "Now it is even more important to maintain and expand those programs and seek new ways to save energy."
The CSU, which has 370,000 students and 40,000 faculty and staff on 23 campuses and five off campus centers throughout the state, has a $50 million annual electric bill and a 600 million kilowatt-per-hour annual consumption. Over the past 20 years, the CSU has implemented energy saving programs that have saved a cumulative 123 million kilowatt hours beyond minimum state code requirements.
In addition to those programs, the CSU has taken several recent steps to respond to the energy crisis. They include the following:
In addition, several ongoing programs are saving the CSU millions of dollars in energy costs.
