Full Title: How is your Campus Using Stimulus Money to Promote Sustainability?

Now that the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) has passed, there are many opportunites for two-year funding and awards for a variety of special projects.

I recently had a question from an AASHE member instution regarding what fellow campuses were doing with the federal economic stimulus money in regards to energy efficency upgrades. In particular the member asked, "What we could really use is a list of energy saving projects that other campuses are going to fund with stimulus money. We are having trouble coming up with ideas because we have been proactive over the years. We really have taken care of most of the low hanging fruit. We need ideas!"

Some campuses have set up websites (see Harvard and Kansas State University as examples) that outline plans and gives information regarding the money and the different areas it will fund.

But, I want to ask you, readers of the this blog and others, what plans does your campus have? Post up!
