An Unnoticed Waste of Energy

Connor Burleigh

Middlebury claims to be very eco-friendly, but even having been here for only 3 months, I can already see gaps in college policy. Every light in every hallway in every residential building is on 24/7. This is a ridiculous waste of energy. I realize that the there must be a permanent source of lighting in the halls, but it can’t be that hard to put the lights on motion sensors, which would significantly reduce wasted energy. I realize that it would be an expensive project, but it is not like we do not have the money. If the college is as committed to eco-friendliness as it claims, it would be worth the cost.
