Penn State makes effort to conserve energy - LEON VALSECHI, Centre Daily

Ford Stryker, associate vice president of the office of physical plant said while the better building program is new, Penn State has been lowering building heat for over 20 years. “It’s not something we do just during the break,” Stryker said. “We lower the heat over night as well and then we turn it back up around 6 a.m. so faculty and students are comfortable when they arrive.” Since proactively cutting the university’s energy consumption, Penn State has averaged $225,000 per year in savings. During the 2013-2014 calendar year the university saved $240,000, which is the highest amount to date.
