Cool buildings, real savings

In an effort to conserve energy, UNCG Facilities Operations set back the heat to approximately 55 degrees F over the winter break.

How much did it save the university? The estimated cost avoidance was $26,200, says Douglas Cato, UNCG Facilities Operations. UNCG saved $13,650 in electricity and $12,550 in natural gas, for a total of $26,200.
