Thompson Rivers University

TRU Energy Revolving Fund

Thompson Rivers University is committed to the principles of sustainability in both its operations and academic programming. Environmental Sustainability is one of the founding principles of Thompson Rivers University identified in the Strategic Plan, and Sustainability is one of the four themes of the Academic Plan. The Thompson Rivers University Environmental Sustainable Fund is being created from the savings of a $1.5 million dollar energy efficiency capital initiative completed in 2011. The actual energy savings from the initiative are used to capitalize the fund. The first list of projects for the fund will come from an analysis of major buildings identifying projects with less than a two year pay back to provide an initial rate of return of 50% for the fund.
