Description: Funding was allocated to purchase photocell sensors for the garage lights in Baity Hill. Photocells are sensors that allow you to detect light and cut off the electricity to the garage lights during the day when the sunlight is out. This ultimately helps save energy by not having the garage lights operate during the day.

Allocated amount: $3,600

Benefits to students and UNC:

  • Direct energy savings
