Columbia University Saves $700,000 a Year Via Energy Efficiency

Columbia UniversityCon Edison’s Green Team has helped Columbia University save more than $700,000 a year in energy costs through upgrades to the school’s water-chilling system.

The university received $469,000 in incentives through Con Edison’s Commercial & Industrial Energy Efficiency Program to offset part of the project’s $2.25 million cost. The upgrade will reduce electricity usage at Columbia’s campus in Manhattan’s Morningside Heights neighborhood by 3.5 million kWh a year. The school will recoup its investment in just over two years.

  1. It’s funny that the Sands Hotel in Las Vegas recently uUpgraded all or most of their lighting and expect to save $400,000 per year in electricity costs alone, but the article didn’t say how much they spent to upgrade their hotel’s lighting system. At least Columbia University released this figure so that all can see that energy efficiency upgrades pay for themselves in a few short years.
