Grant secures light upgrade
brighter on campus after the sun goes down. The University of North Dakota was recently awarded a grant from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, which gives the university $1 million to redo some of the lights around campus. This grant will mainly be put into use installing eco-friendly lights around campus. The bulbs used in this project are more efficient than the current bulbs. "Each light bulb will be using about 1.8 megawatts less than the high pressure sodium that are in place," said Randy Bohlman, an industrial electric systems analyst for UND. The new lights will be placed mainly near the campus parking lots. These parking lots include the parking ramp, by the Memorial Union, and residence hall parking lots, in addition to the city's street lights.
