PSU Energy Use Statistics
The top light blue line is the electricity consumption for 2009-10 (from July through June).
The dark blue line is the electricity consumption for 2013-14.
In 2009-10 the PSU used 2,565,200 kWh. In 2012-13 it used 1,955,200 kWh, a 24% drop in consumption while increasing square footage by 50%. That avoided about $55,000 in today’s energy dollars in electricity alone for 2012-13, or the same as:
- building about 6 of the ASU Wind Turbines (at a cost of $3,000,000), or
- providing enough power for 47 average NC houses for a year, or
- avoiding burning 628,000 pounds of coal.
