USM Saves Over $10M in Energy Costs Since 2009

The University of Mississippi has used several energy conservation measures including turning off lights, unplugging appliances and even changing light fixtures. During fiscal year 2009, Southern Miss spent $7.2 million on energy costs. For FY 2014 which ended June 30, the university’s total electric bill was $4.5 million — a savings of $2.7 million over the 2009 costs. USM also installed LED outdoor lighting on about half the campus.
