The Energy Conservation (EC) Shop was established in January 1999. This shop has the responsibility of overseeing the efficiency and cost effectiveness of energy using systems across campus. This encompasses the usage of electricity, water, steam, and other forms of utilities. In addition, this shop oversees the building system controls.
