New and improved field lighting at UB Stadiumare among the elements of a multimillion dollar energy-efficiency upgrade that the New York Power Authority (NYPA) recently completed at the University at Buffalo. Hundreds of high-intensity discharge lamps are providing enhanced lighting levels for football and other athletics, while consuming less energy than the fixtures they replaced. The improvements are part of a major energy-efficiency upgrade at UB’s three campuses for a projected savings to the university of more than $630,000 a year on its utility bills.
