CWU is carefully tracking its electricity and gas consumption, and working to reduce consumption despite an increase in building square footage.
The size of CWU's building footprint (campus square footage) has increased during 1999-2016 with the addition of new buildings.
With improved energy efficiency measures, consumption of gas (therms) has decreased during this time, despite the increase in campus buidling footprint.
Total electricity consumption at CWU has fluctuated over time with changing square footage. The electricy/campus square footage data indicates electricity efficiency improvements over time.
