Energy conservation measures aren't just good for the environment. At the University of Washington, our conservation is also good for the budget.
Conservation measures at the UW added up to a savings of more than $14 million over the last fiscal year in avoided utility costs. That includes nearly $6 million in savings due to water conservation, and another $4.76 million for electricity conservation.
You can see this information and more on our Sustainability Dashboard, including downloads of the Excel documents with the numbers behind the graphs. We'll be highlighting a Dashboard metric on our blog every week during the upcoming year.
