Light Reduction
ISU has converted our lighting from incandescent bulbs to compact florescent, which has reduced our electricity consumption by one third. We have partnered with the EPA Green Lights program to install energy efficient lighting and controls. We also worked with Duke Energy’s Indiana Demand Side Management (DSM) Core Programs, which provided rebates for upgrading existing facilities to energy efficient equipment. Though this program, we installed a variable-air-volume HVAC system for the Cunningham Memorial Library. Light switch plate covers have been installed throughout campus to remind everybody to take responsibility for energy conservation. Starting in fall 2018, every room in ISU Residence Halls will have marketing on the interior of the door, reminding students to turn their lights off and switch of their energy bandits.

Transportation - Bike share for the entire campus and community, bike fix-it stations, enterprise car share for students and staff, free public bus rides for ISU students, staff, and faculty, and the encouragement of alternative transportation.
