Energy Conservation Program
In February 2010 Luther officially adopted an Energy Conservation Program. The creation of the program was funded by a grant from the Rocky Mountain Institute and developed with consultants from Sebesta Blomberg. Through education and innovative programming we hope to achieve a 2% reduction in energy use per year through behavior change and will continue our work on energy efficiency (3%/year), as well as larger projects like the wind turbine, biomass project and building improvement projects.
