Emory University program saves energy, sends money saved to Haiti
Submitted by Shawn Reeves
"The Emory community came together to save almost $33,000 by reducing its energy consumption during the Haiti Relief Energy Conservation Challenge, a partnership between the Emory Global Health Institute and the Emory Sustainability Initiatives. Faculty, students, and staff across campus reduced their energy consumption this March by 4 percent from the previous March, with the goal of using the energy funds saved to sponsor Emory students working on global health and earthquake relief efforts in Haiti this summer. In a sense, the Emory community was transferring human energy from its campus to the earthquake-ravaged country."
