UNH Energy Efficiency Fund

Prospective projects are vetted through UNH’s Energy Task Force, which is comprised of all campus stakeholders (with a Foundation Board member and staff person added). The fund’s target is to average a 5‐year payback on all projects funded. The fund’s goal is to be cost neutral to the campus as all measured savings are transparent through extensive metering, in order to ensure that the campus sees no impact on its utility costs.


The higher education participants in The Challenge are managed by Second Nature. To learn more about how Second Nature plans to expand use of GRFs in higher education, visit their page!
