This chapter, Residence Halls Retrofits, provides a walkthrough of the lighting energy audit conducted for all existing residence halls, excluding North and South Morlan, and builds a retrofit package that provides:
- Cost-benefit analysis
- Return on investment
- Environmental Impacts: Carbon emissions
- Energy savings
Lighting retrofits for residence halls have the potential to be simple and efficient. Chapman University paid a total of $98,168.15 for lighting alone in 2014. If the recommended lighting fixtures are to be installed, it is projected that Chapman would pay a total of $62,406.41 for lighting. The university will save $35,761.75 every year for lighting.
