A brief description of the institution's initiatives to shift individual attitudes and practices in regard to energy efficiency:
---

A brief description of energy use standards and controls employed by the institution:

FLC uses an Andover Controls energy management system that sets heating and cooling set points at 68-69F and 75-76F for the majority of buildings on campus.


A brief description of Light Emitting Diode (LED) lighting and other energy-efficient lighting strategies employed by the institution:

For all recent projects involving adding or changing out lighting, FLC opts for LEDs. FLC also fulfills individual departments' requests for the replacement of old lighting with LEDs. For example, projects on the docket include changing the spotlighting in the concert hall and lighting in the Center for Southwest Studies gallery to LEDs.

FLC is also in the process of replacing all their outdoor lighting with LEDs. 75 outdoor walk lights were recently changed to LEDs as part of this ongoing project.


A brief description of passive solar heating, geothermal systems, and related strategies employed by the institution:

FLC's three LEED certified buildings were oriented in order to maximize daylighting and passive solar heating. A light tower in the Student Union Addition and dimmers in Berndt Hall make the most of daylighting.


A brief description of co-generation employed by the institution:
---

A brief description of the institution's initiatives to replace energy-consuming appliances, equipment, and systems with high efficiency alternatives:

As part of a campus-wide performance contract initiated in 2012, boilers were replaced with high-efficiency models and individual building-level electric controls were recalibrated.
