CSU Facilities and Infrastructure

  • The CSU has focused resources on increasing the generation and use of green energy as well as environmental design in new campus buildings. These efforts have helped the CSU to minimize a potential increase in its carbon footprint due to growing enrollment and technology usage. With California employment in the Energy sector growing 63 percent from 1995 to2008, the CSU is providing a platform for the future leaders of the green economy.
  • The CSU sources the majority of its electric power from utilities and, whenever possible, utilizes cogeneration, a very efficient means of producing electricity and thermal energy through the same process. San Diego State University has a co-generation 15 megawatt power plant that uses waste heat to produce power and operates at 72 percent efficiency as compared with most utilities, which operate at only 30—40 percent efficiency. This $22 million investment saves nearly $6.5 million in energy costs each year. The San Francisco State campus also operates 2.0 megawatts of cogeneration that produces electricity for campus use and reuses the waste heat for campus heating. Through the combined efficiency of the cogeneration plant, the campus realizes $500,000 to $600,000 annually in savings over the direct purchase of electricity and gas.
  • Furthermore, as the campuses have grown, the CSU has successfully offset the potential environmental impacts of this growth by decreasing energy usage per square foot. There have been significant improvements in per square foot energy consumption, despite increases in area, meaning that CSU has become more efficient in its energy use. That said, for the CSU to reach its goal, additional measures are needed.
