Quinnipiac University was recognized with an Energy Efficiency Leadership Award for completing a comprehensive energy project on the state-of-the-art Center for Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences and the new Frank. H. Netter School of Medicine. Utilizing programs administered by The United Illuminating Company as part of the Energize Connecticut initiative, the university was able to implement a variety of energy-efficient measures, including lighting and equipment upgrades.
In addition to increasing overall energy efficiency, the renovations result in an estimated $61,700 saved on energy costs annually. Quinnipiac University also received $87,040 in incentive payments made available through the Energize Connecticut initiative.
Quinnipiac’s proactive energy savings initiatives show their commitment to sustainability. The United Illuminating Company worked with the university to identify opportunities, implement energy saving solutions and comply with requirements to receive rebates and incentives made available through Connecticut’s Energy Efficiency programs.
Energize Connecticut programs help you save money and use clean, affordable energy. The programs are a partnership of the Energy Efficiency Fund, the Clean Energy Finance and Investment Authority, and your local electric and gas utilities and are funded by a charge on customer energy bills.
