Fuel Conservation

In the summer 2009, we purchased our first hybrid fuel vehicle with plans to replace other University-owned vehicles as funding allows. In addition, we are investigating the use of electric trucks to replace some on-campus maintenance vehicles.

Also in the summer 2009, the Department of Biology, under the leadership of Dr. Tim Knight, began experimentation on the feasibility of converting waste oil from our food service operations into bio-diesel for use in campus equipment.



A number of resources are available for fuel conservation.
