Energy Efficiency Efforts Win Best Practice Award
April 23, 2013
Cal State Fullerton has been honored with two Energy Efficiency and Sustainability Best Practice Awards sponsored by the University of California/California State University and IOU Energy Efficiency Partnership. The campus has been recognized for best overall sustainable design for its third phase of student housing, the first housing complex in California to receive the U.S. Green Building Council's Platinum Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. The university's campuswide lighting project also was honored. The University's efficiency efforts continue to reduce the campus's carbon footprint and maintenance costs, and have save approximately 4 million kilowatt hours of energy, say campus officials. Award recipients will be formally recognized in June at the California Higher Education Sustainability Conference in Santa Barbara.
