Growth Chamber Phase 3 Energy Conservation Project Saves $37,000 and 237 tons of CO2e Annually

We replaced 10 inefficient growth chambers with 6 new efficient chambers...


Energy use was decreased by over 90%. Maintenance costs will be significantly reduced. Lighting level was increased by 50% improving research.

"We jumped at the chance to recycle 10 of our least efficient growth chambers in exchange for 6 new highly-efficient units that will enhance plant research at Cornell for decades."
Nick VanEck, Growth Chamber Supervisor
