Since 1973, Plant Operations has done much to reduce energy consumption on campus. Energy consumption per square meter has been reduced by 42% since 1973. Even though the campus has grown substantially in this period, the electricity bill in constant dollars is less now than in 1973. This has largely been accomplished by the Department of Plant Operations and predates the WATgreen initiative. In fact they have done such a good job that not much has been left for students to do!
Projects are available either on the world wide web or in the Dana Porter (Arts) Library, Special Collections.
