Richland College offers numerous night classes for folks who commute and work during the day. Powering the campus late into the night was expensive. We coordinated with the applicable instructors and administrative personnel to consolidate all night classes into a single building instead of having them scattered all throughout the campus requiring all buildings to be powered.
By condensing all night classes into a single building, we were able to power down in the remaining buildings, saving an enormous amount of energy as a result of reduced lighting and heating/cooling requirements. This will be increasingly valuable as the campus continues to grow in size and enrollment.
