UH Mānoa students will be changing all the incandescent light bulbs in the seven-story Saunders Hall to Compact Fluorescent Lights (CFLs) which will save energy and generate rebates from the Hawaiian Electric Company.

Saunders Hall is the site of UH Mānoa‘s pilot project in reducing energy usage, demonstrating sustainable practices, and testing alternative energy sources.

UH Mānoa is targeting a 30 percent reduction of campus-wide energy use by 2012, based on a 2003 campus energy benchmark.
