Under the agreement, UMass and Eversource will collaborate on a variety of initiatives to increase energy efficiency including any construction or improvements across campus such as LED and HVAC updates. UMass students will also have the opportunity to intern and network with Eversource throughout their education. As a result of the three-year agreement, the university aims to reduce energy costs by $1.8 million per year. This is the second such agreement the two parties have entered.
“UMass Amherst has been a shining example of efficient and sustainable growth,” said Eversource Vice President of Energy Efficiency Tilak Subrahmanian. “We are excited to announce our ongoing collaboration, which will help the university continue to cut energy costs, grow efficiently and contribute to a cleaner and healthier state environment.”
