ADRIAN, Mich. - Consumers Energy recently awarded Adrian College $66,000 for the College’s energy efficient renovations to the existing structure of Peelle and Jones Hall on campus. The multimillion-dollar renovation and construction project included significant upgrades including, high-efficiency lighting and a new, state-of-the art heating and cooling system that monitors chemical fumes. The College also invested in an Energy Management System (EMS), allowing the institution to responsibly monitor its energy usage at all times.
“As Adrian College evolves into a more robust and sophisticated institution, so too must we become more sensitive to the natural world,” said President Jeffrey Docking. “This check symbolizes our efforts to be more energy efficient and ecologically friendly.”
Adrian College applied to receive the check through Consumers Energy’s New Construction Program. The New Construction Program offers rebates to institutions making strides to lower overall energy use. The College’s energy-conscious upgrades to Peelle and Jones Hall made Adrian a model recipient.
