Description: LED bulbs are much more efficient than regular incandescent light bulbs.  Replacing older light bulbs with LED bulbs helps to reduce energy consumption by the university.  They are also brighter than incandescent bulbs and therefore improve safety on campus during the nighttime.  The project’s approval funded the installation of 58 LED bulbs along South Road and Stadium Drive.

Allocation amount: $35,000

Benefits to students and UNC:

  • Direct energy savings
  • Increased outdoor safety
