LAWRENCE, KS — The University of Kansas is starting to light up more efficiently, according to the Daily Kansan.
The University Center for Sustainability is teaming up with Energy Solutions Professionals to replace energy-consuming light bulbs around campus, the article stated.
According to the article, Jeff Servin, director of the center for sustainability, hopes to complete the project by the end of October.
"Today, we''re trying to get about 150 bulbs out. They''ve identified about 3,000 lamps on campus that we might be able to change out, so I know their goal is at least a couple thousand bulbs," said Servin.
The new bulbs will also help the university contribute to the Take Charge Challenge, a competition of energy conservation among cities in Kansas, the article noted.
Savings from the new light bulbs looks to be the equivalent of saving more than 9,000 gallons of gasoline each year, the article added.
