Eversource works with UConn to reduce energy use and advance overall sustainability

As part of its long-term partnership with UConn, Eversource has worked with the university to reduce energy use, cut operational expenses, and advance its overall sustainability and carbon neutrality goals.

Most recently, several energy efficiency upgrades were completed in the Marine Sciences Building at UConn’s Avery Point campus, such as optimizing air changes in labs, installing exhaust controls on three boilers to maximize their efficiency, adjusting controls and schedules in the building management system, and installing LED lighting.

These improvements are helping the Avery Point campus reduce natural gas use by more than 50,000 cubic feet per year and cut carbon emissions by more than 300 tons – the equivalent of planting 355 acres of forests.
