Facility Maintenance Decisions

Financial Management: Stony Brook (N.Y.) University





Stony Brook (N.Y.) University

This retrofit project began when the university's administration and Sustainability Studies academic program conducted lighting audits of campus buildings to measure lighting use, controls, and occupant behavior. In response to the audit, the division of facilities and services retrofitted a parking garage with 390 high-efficiency fluorescent, induction, and LED fixtures. As a result of the project, the garage is estimated to use 65 percent less electricity, or about 240,000 kilowatt-hours annually, and will require less maintenance. To gain a better understanding of electricity demand and consumption, the department also installed more than 130 smart electric meters on campus.
