The Center for Suitability recently approved a fee grant proposed by the Director of Facility Operations to add more LED lighting on the pedestrian on the Georgia Southern University Statesboro campus.

“Most of the pedestrian lighting has been upgraded to LED,” Stephen Frawley, the mechanical superintendent at Facility Services, said. “The areas that have been upgraded have made a great impact in that they produce a well-lit and safe environment for our faculty, staff and students.”

The proposal’s goal is to finish upgrading the lighting in order to result in better student safety, higher increase of light levels and energy efficiency, lower maintenance costs and a better color rending index.

Sustainability Fee Grants are open to any GS student, faculty or staff member on the Statesboro campus and may address any type of sustainability aspect in the areas of water, waste, biodiversity, energy, food, transportation, sustainability promotion and so forth. Each approved project’s grant tends to range from $1,000 to $100,000.

During the spring 2019 semester, the Center for Sustainability received 28 proposals and accepted 15 of those submissions. The accepted proposals currently total $266,997.

More information on the approved proposals can be found on the CFS website.
