Campus 101: UC Davis to cut on consumption of energy


Officials from the University of California, Davis have announced the start of a $39 million dollar program in efforts to reduce the amount of light bulbs and energy used on campus buildings. With the start of the New Smart Initiative, UC Davis is among the first major institution in California that is making an effort upon lowering the use of energy by the year 2010.  As lighting accounts for one-forth of California’s electricity use, “UC Davis is uniquely able to serve as a model for virtually anyone who uses electric lights in California,” says Michael Siminovitch. With the start of this program, UC Davis is expected to cut its consumption of energy through various strategies on the use of electricity. This marks a great progress towards cutting the consumption of energy on college campuses and serves a great model for other universities to follow through.
