As part of the effort to continue working toward a more carbon-neutral campus, the U of A will begin energy-saving upgrades across 6 million square feet of facilities across campus.

The university has contracted with Entegrity to help facilitate the project. This is the fourth Energy Savings Performance Contract for the U of A. The project is the next step in advancing the university’s sustainability goals through a combination of cost-effective energy efficiency upgrades.

“This project will not only help the University of Arkansas campus become more energy efficient, but it will also provide another example of our commitment to leading the way in supporting environmentally beneficial projects that also make good financial sense,” Chancellor Joe Steinmetz said.  

The improvements will include LED lighting, retro-commissioning, fault detection diagnostics and upgrades to HVAC and building envelope systems. These upgrades will help the university reduce their annual expenses by $1.35 million per year and save enough energy to power approximately 1,240 homes annually.
