Have you noticed some of the lights have been turned off at the Welland Campus? Reducing energy consumption is one of the five sustainability targets, and as a strategy, several lighting adjustments have been made to reduce consumption and increase efficiency. All of the adjustments have been programmed to turn off fifteen minutes before sunrise, and turn back on fifteen minutes before sunset.

The lighting changes have been made to various lighting circuits within the separate buildings, and hallways. The following list shows the current adjustments:
