Salisbury University is always looking at ways to reduce its energy consumption and carbon footprint. As new technologies have emerged, older campus facilities have been retrofitted with more efficient lighting, HVAC systems and other building components. This page highlights some of the University's more prominent clean and efficient energy features.
SU has installed occupancy sensors in many offices, meeting spaces and classrooms to reduce lighting energy consumption when these spaces are not occupied. Occupancy sensors are estimated to produce a savings of 30%, and are especially effective in areas which have frequent periods of inactivity.
To best balance cost and comfort, an energy manager controls and optimizes building HVAC systems using an electronic building automation system.
