In February 2010, Luther officially adopted an Energy Conservation Program. The creation of the program was funded by a $45,000 grant from the Rocky Mountain Institute and developed with consultants from Sebesta Blomberg. Through innovative programming related to energy conservation, we hope to reduce energy consumption 2 percent per year through behavior change and will continue our work on energy efficiency (3% per year), as well as larger projects like the wind turbine, biomass project and building improvement projects.
Use these energy conservation tips to help us reach our goals!
Luther has watt meters available to check out to any student, faculty, or staff member that desires to use one. By plugging it into a wall outlet where you have another electronic device plugged in, you can measure the amount of electricity used.

Watt meters can also be checked out from the Library Circulation Desk for two weeks at a time.
