Rutgers recently completed a lighting and motor upgrade on its Newark, Camden and RBHS campuses. It had previously completed upgrades on its New Brunswick and Piscataway Campuses. Under one of New Jersey Clean Energy Programs called the Large Energy User Program the University was able to get a grant of $1,153,951. The overall savings will be 3,691,000 KWH annually. That is a cost savings of over $425,000 a year. This savings does not include the cost savings in maintenance and reduction in Air conditioning due to lower heat loads from the lamps and motors.The project was a collaboration of Utilities and Contract Services.Maintenance, the Business office, and Design were also involved.
