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

-Students and staff receive announcements before University breaks to power down electronics.
-During the annual Instagram Sustainability Challenge, participants are challenged to reduce energy such as using natural light and unplugging before bed.
-Monthly themed challenges are posted on Instagram, Facebook and via newsletter with prizes to engage the community in sustainable behaviors. July's theme is "Energy."


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

Pacific utilizes web-based Energy Management Systems to control HVAC equipment settings based on occupancy, time and season. Scheduled times are: Offices M-F 7am- 5pm; Academic building’s M-F 7am- 10pm; Dorms 24/7; Athletics 7 days a week 6am- 9pm.

Occupied set points are 74 degrees for cooling and 68 degrees for heating. Unoccupied set points are 85 degrees for cooling and 45 degrees for heating. In an effort to standardized the control systems, Pacific is also currently in the process of replacing multiple, old control systems.


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

Nearly all exterior lighting is LED. Physical Plant regularly replaces flourescent lights with LEDs when old lights burn out. Over 20% of the buildings have all LED and every year four to five more buildings are converted. In FY 18 nearly 5,000 lamps were installed. Over 3,500 LED lamps were installed in FY19.


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

Based on Energy use data from all Stockton meters for 1 year billing cycle. Meters have different billing dates so data was sorted from July 1, 2018 - July 15, 2019 to capture a full billing cycle. Baseline data only included Stockton campus so only Stockton data is reported.
