Does the institution use motion, infrared, and/or light sensors to reduce energy use for lighting in at least one building?:

A brief description of the technology used:

As part of the same energy conservation project in buildings A&B on the Technical Campus completed in May 2004, all office, classroom, and hallway lighting fixtures have been converted to two T-8 fluorescent bulbs per unit, with electronic ballasts and reflectors. The high ceiling labs in building B were changed from metal halide low bay fixtures to 6 bulb T-8 fluorescent fixtures with electronic ballasts. The light switches in the offices were changed to “Watt Stopper” passive motion sensor switches with adjustable sensitivity and duration of lapse of movement before switching off the lights. These were installed wherever feasible.
Southwest campus motion sensors are installed in all faculty and staff offices. Some motion sensors have also been installed in classrooms and work areas.
