  Energy Conservation Project is Seattle City Lights Largest
  SEATTLEThe largest energy conservation project in Seattle City Lights history saves enough electrical energy to power over 4000 homes for a year and is in place at the University of Washington (UW).

On Tuesday, May 25th at 9:00 am at UW Faculty Center Club, City Light Superintendent Gary Zarker will present UW Executive Vice President Weldon Ihrig with a giant (2x 4) check made out to the University of Washington. The amount is $6.5 million dollars, representing incentives the University received for energy management projects.

Seattle Mayor Paul Schell, and State Senators Ken Jacobsen (D-46) and Jeanne Kohl-Welles (D-36) will also join them to acknowledge the hard work and accomplishments of the UWs Energy Management Group and City Lights project management team.

Since 1992, the University of Washington and City Light have combined resources to install more than $12 million dollars of energy efficient lighting improvements and new technology in a variety of buildings across campus. The UW now saves nearly two million dollars on energy expenses each year as a result.

The University is expected to recover its $6 million dollar share of project costs in about three years and will continue to reap benefits for years to come. In addition to lower electrical bills, the UW benefits from standardized maintenance practices, and reduced ongoing maintenance costs. Staff, faculty and students enjoy enhanced academic and workspaces due to improved lighting and more a comfortable environment while saving valuable resources.
