Providing Light to Campus: "Who Does That?"

Published: Nov 29, 2012

 

 

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Nov. 29, 2012) — The University of Kentucky’s recently concluded $25 million energy savings project is beginning to show dividends. Energy costs have been cut by $2.4 million a year, and the university's annual carbon dioxide output has been slashed by more than 23 tons, the equivalent of removing 45,755 cars from the state’s roads.

 

A significant portion of that savings — $494,000 — is the result of updating campus lighting in 49 buildings. Energy efficient light bulbs have been installed in about 165,750 fixtures.

 

Not only is the savings surprising, but so has been the reaction of the community. In a recent interview about upgrades in the Chemistry-Physics Building, Chemistry Chair Mark Meier said, ”The improvement in the light level was shocking. This is what people notice.”

 

People have also noticed their fellow workers who have toiled to replace those thousands of light bulbs. View today's video to learn their story of keeping The Kentucky Promise.
