    Energy conservation is vital to maintaining our energy savings and emission reductions and has a strong payback. iWG suggests that the Provost’s Office considers this recommendation when reviewing Facilities and Services’ budget for FY19. Attached please see the original recommendation made by SWAT-ecbs and the evaluation of by iWG.

    If you have any questions about the recommendation, please let us know. We would appreciate any responses regarding your perspective on this recommendation.

    Best regards

    Ximing Cai
