Boulder employees rewarded for energy improvements
As part of ongoing efforts to reduce its environmental footprint and the campus energy bill, the University of Colorado at Boulder is rewarding employees $1,000 each for reducing building energy usage by at least 5 percent over the previous fiscal year.
This year, building proctors John Culshaw, David Nicoll and Donna Maes took the energy challenge to heart and reduced Norlin, Hellems and Math buildings' electricity use by a combined total of 11.6 percent. They will each receive a one-time $1,000 cash bonus from CU-Boulder Vice Chancellor for Administration Frank Bruno. The three buildings conserved 645,000 kWh, reduced carbon dioxide emissions by over 1 million pounds and saved the Boulder campus nearly $65,000.
