On a case by case basis, CU Green Labs is able to offer financial incentives from Facilities Management for:
Purchasing energy efficient lab equipment
Covering disposal costs for lab equipment being retired without replacement
Purchasing water efficient equipment
Replacing the use of a faucet aspirators with a vacuum pump
Replacing water-cooled condensers with waterless condensers
Free low flow aerators for lab faucets
How does the incentive program work?
- Our incentive program is for the purchase of energy or water efficient equipment.
- If a lab is planning on purchasing a new piece of equipment, or replacing a piece of equipment, the lab can contact us and apply for a financial incentive toward the purchase of the new equipment. This conversation needs to happen before the new purchase takes place.
- The value of the financial incentive is equivalent to up to 5 years of energy or water savings that CU Boulder will gain from the purchase of more efficient equipment. The incentive is applied at the time of the equipment purchase.
