Energy Conservation Incentive Program (ECIP)
For many years all utility expenses for Stanford's core academic buildings have been the responsibility of the University's Budget Office. With the Energy Conservation Incentive Program, responsibility for academic electricity expenses has been shifted "down" in the organization to twenty-one Budget Units. Under this program, your School or administrative unit has an opportunity to benefit directly by reducing electricity use.
Every person on campus, from undergraduate to professor emeritus, can make some simple changes in everyday habits and common purchasing decisions that reduce electricity use, usually with no detriment to comfort or performance.
If you have questions or comments about promoting the Energy Conservation Incentive Program in your department, please contact the office of your Dean, Vice Provost, or Vice President.
