Energy Star Reimbursement for Purchasing Energy Efficient Equipment
While there may be a small premium for more efficient, Energy Star rated equipment, the savings more than justifies the cost for the university. The Campus Office of Resource Conservation may be able to reduce or eliminate these premiums and, in some cases, reimburse you if the Energy Star premium cannot be reduced. If the laboratory equipment is too specialized to have the official “Energy Star” rating but is more efficient than a less expensive alternative, there may be an opportunity to still eliminate, reduce, or reimburse the premium. Contact Kathy to see what options are possible.
