The Green Fee Governance Committee would like to proudly announce our 2013-2014 recipient: Forrister Ross '14 and his proposal to install Lucid monitoring systems in the four first year dormitories. The system will provide real time data on electricity consumption in an easy to use dashboard that will be physically displayed in the dormitories, as well as be accessible by all students via the web.

Lucid Design Group is in the business of providing energy consumption awareness to both the public and private sector. Their experience has culminated in energy savings at private universities around the United States, including Cornell, Stanford, and Emory. Lucid’s software, BuildingOS, will be installed to monitor Richmond, West, Davidson, and Webster
Ross has worked with the Office of Residential Life to ensure the longevity of success the Lucid system can bring to campus. Residential Advisors will be the first to make their new floor mates aware of the system this coming fall and will provide simple tips on ways to reduce consumption. Competitions will occur throughout the year to encourage energy reduction by offering small prizes to the building that shows the largest reductions.
