First SU Green Fund Project Installs LEDs
When senior biology major Miguel Bolano was considering projects to submit for Salisbury University’s new Green Fund initiative, a light bulb went on in his head. It was an LED. Learning about rebates from the Maryland Energy Administration (MEA) for energy-efficient upgrades, he recommended upgrading all interior and exterior lighting at SU’s Admissions House with LEDs. At a projected energy cost savings of $2,000 per year, plus motion sensors to make sure low-traffic areas of the building are illuminated only when necessary, Bolano expects the project to pay for itself in as little as two years.
