Energy Conservation and Parking Lot Closures
|Date: Friday, December 13th, 2013||Return to Archive|
In order to maximize energy savings initiatives, Parking &Transportation Services will be closing both parking structures and several parking lots that would be used very little during Winter Break. The Winter Break Parking Lot Lighting Plan Map shows which lots are closed, partially closed, or open during this period. To view this map, click HERE.
The closed lots will not be lit after dark. Signs will be placed at the entrance of these lots, “LOT CLOSES AT DUSK.” Any student or departmental vehicle left on campus during this time should be parked in Pearce Ford Tower (PFT) lot. PFT lot will remain open and lit throughout the break. PS1 & PS2 will close following Commencement on Saturday, December 14th. They will remain closed and dark except for dates that basketball games are scheduled.
In addition, Facilities Management will be upgrading light fixtures in all parking lots to more energy-efficient LED lights during the December break. Utilizing LED technology for lighting will reduce energy consumption by 45% in parking lots and is the latest of a series of energy savings investments led by DFM.
