Energy Conservation

Northwest Missouri State University ranks in the top five for energy conservation based on the results of the 2013 Campus Conservation Nationals.

Other schools in the top five include Oregon State University, St. John's University in New York, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Harvey Mudd College. All 120 competing schools combined to save almost 180 thousand dollars. Northwest's main focus was towards the freshman residence halls, Husdon, Perrin, Phillips, Franken, Millikan and Dieterich. The residence halls also competed against each other for the prize of a water bottle filling station. A big part of earning this distinction was Northwest's energy policy implemented last fall. The policy sets standards for energy usage within university buildings including temperature set points. The program is expected to save the university more than 300 thousand dollars in utilities.
