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:

Richland has installed motion sensors to turn off lights in a majority of the classrooms in Del Rio, El Paso, and Neches Halls. Lighting in the entirety of Sabine Hall, classrooms, labs, offices, hallways, and common areas, is moderated by light sensors which adjust lighting levels based on the amount of exterior light coming into the building. A new addition (offices, conference room, break room, etc.) to the Pecos Building utilizes Lutron motion sensors to shut off lights after a specified amount of time, when motion is not detected.
