Energy Conservation

California is one of the nation's leaders in distributed generation, renewable energy development and energy conservation policy. All new state buildings beginning in 2025 shall be as Zero Net Energy. The state also has a target to reduce its Green House Gas emmissions to 80% below 1990 levels by 2050.  The CSU has committed to meet this goal by 2040.

Fortunately, there are some simple steps that CSUSM can take to avoid outages while simultaneously helping the campus meet its energy reduction goals.

Highlighted points from Executive Order 987

  • All CSU buildings and facilities, regardless of the source of funding for their operation, will be operated in the most energy efficient manner without endangering public health and safety and without diminishing the quality of education.
  • All CSU campuses will continue to identify energy efficiency improvement measures to the greatest extent possible, undertake all necessary steps to seek funding for their implementation and, upon securing availability of funds, expeditiously implement the measures.
  • Each campus energy/utilities manager shall solicit and evaluate feedback from faculty, staff, and students to monitor the effects of energy conservation efforts on instructional programs and the environment. Training on new energy management concepts and programs will be provided as necessary
