OSU-Tulsa Begins Energy Upgrade Program
Students, faculty and staff will notice some changes on campus over the next few weeks as OSU-Tulsa begins the next phase of its energy conservation efforts.
New low-flow toilets and urinals are part of the project, which focuses on upgrading equipment to require reduced consumption of water and electricity.
In addition, lighting fixtures across campus will be retrofitted to be more energy efficient, a new cooling tower will be installed in North Hall and two new, more energy efficient chillers and air handlers will be installed in Main Hall.
OSU-Tulsa has contracted with Johnson Controls of Tulsa to complete work on the energy efficiency project. Work began this week and is scheduled to be finished in April 2013.
