Natural Capital

Energy-efficiency lighting upgrades—this project would consist of a survey of the entire campus, making note of all the locations that may still be using incandescent bulbs, writing down their sizes, and describing their fixtures. Then, the student would calculate the savings by changing these bulbs to CFLs or LEDs. The student would also communicate with Bill Ballard and the sustainability office to find vendors and prices for replacement lights. Finally, the student would develop a proposal to fund the replacement of the lights that they could submit to SCGF, the green revolving loan fund or to GMC’s capital budget process (Contact sustainability director, Ryan Ihrke).
