A $15,000 grant from the Imago Dei Fund, along with matching funds from the college, will establish a rotating environmental fund at Wenham’s Gordon College devoted to energy-efficiency projects on campus. For example, the campus will replace light bulbs in student parking lots, bringing the wattage in 38 lights down from 460 to 135 watts, reducing energy costs by approximately $6,400, saving 54,000 pounds of carbon dioxide from being discharged into the atmosphere, and reducing the use of mercury-containing light bulbs. “Over the next three years, we’ll make other improvements to campus walkway lighting and repair windows in the older residence halls, reducing heating costs,” said Janel Curry, college provost, in a news release. Future projects include the installation of energy management systems in campus buildings and dorm competitions to reduce energy use.
