The TVA and BGMU presented WKU a six-figure check for their energy saving program.
Today the two organizations gave Western more than 100,000 for implementing energy-saving measures, like replacing more than 70,000 lights and replacing three H-VAC Chiller Units, that provide cooler air conditioning.
"We do it for two reasons, one it's the right thing to do. And secondly it's cost efficient and it's a net bottom line contributor to our balanced budget that is saving dollars as we move forward in a very complex economic environment," said Dr. Gary A. Ransdell.
President Ransdell says the money will go right back toward more energy-saving programs.
