Efforts to install a new energy infrastructure are reducing Manchester University’s carbon footprint in a big way, and they are also paying back in other ways.
The University on Tuesday got a $21,000 rebate check from the Energizing Indiana program for replacing two chillers and adding a leading-edge monitoring system that ensures energy is used only where and when it’s needed.
One of the old chillers was more than 30 years old. Consuming less energy to cool buildings helps the environment, saves money and helps Manchester contain costs for students.
On Tuesday, Laura Sheets from Duke Energy gave the check to Jack Gochenaur, MU vice president for financial affairs and treasurer, and members of the MU Green Campus Initiative committee: Chris Garber, associate vice president for financial affairs and director of operations; Michael Case, director of information technology services; and Dale Carpenter, director of human resources.
