What has the college been doing?

The College has been trying to reduce its energy consumption over the years. Better rated appliances, changing lighting to LED, power off devices, sensor lights and heating/cooling.  Here’s a graph to show our energy journey since 2015. The College has completed an energy audit and looking at our future energy resources. Hopefully it will include renewables in the future!
