In late 2007, the Connecticut Legislature passed Public Act 07-100, which mandates that cleaning products used in State buildings must meet environmental standards set by a state-approved environmental certification program (e.g., Green SealTM).
According to Section 15.4: Electrical Metering Requirements and Section 15.16 Building Automation and Utilities Management Systems of the UConn Design Guidelines and Performance Standards, “The University utilizes the Square D PowerLogic system for metering buildings throughout campus”. PowerLogic is used to “monitor consumption, power quality, demands, as well as
other variables of our electrical systems.”
According to Section 14.17 of the UConn Design Guidelines and Performance Standards “The University supplies chilled water, steam, and portable water to the main hub of the Storrs campus.
Such utilities supplied by the University shall be metered and monitored utilizing the preferred
electronic software which will be compatible with what electronic monitoring already exists in the
building or the area around a new building.” Furthermore, “Meters shall be connected to the building management system for monitoring consumption.”
The University also monitors area streamflows and issues water conservation notices to campus users during drought conditions.
