The research goal of this project was to analyze the current system of how WPI handles its utilities, namely gas and electric, and propose ways in which the system could be improved and ultimately save the campus money. Through examining the current system, a need was discovered for better organization of bills and meters, as well as for the individual monitoring of on-campus buildings. By talking with WPI staff members and examining how other colleges handle their utilities, a list of recommendations were compiled, and if implemented, would help to not only save the campus money and be better organized but improve WPI's level of sustainability and raise awareness to its community.
