Electricity at GMC

  • According to GMC's 2009 GHG Emissions Inventory, purchased electricity contributes 17.6% of campus emissions. Total electricity emissions equal 1,063 MTCO2e.

  • New efficiency measures are helping GMC reduce emissions from electricity. Projects include: 200+ occupancy sensors across campus, LED lighting retrofits on all building exteriors, replacement of gym lighting and vending misers on all campus vending machines.

  • Buildings and operations affect how much electricity we use on campus, and so does individual action. You can help reduce the plug-load in your working and living space by turning off and unplugging appliances and chargers when not in use.
