ENERGY AND CARBON

Because energy is one of our largest sources of greenhouse gas emissions, UWSP is committed to reducing our energy consumption through conservation and efficiency and ultimately switching to clean, renewable sources of energy.

UWSP performed energy conservation projects in the 1980s and the 1990's, specifically with the Wisconsin Energy Initiative I, II and III. Also in the 1990's we went from dispersed stand-alone chillers in each building to two central chillers which significantly reduced our electrical usage.
