GVSU staff members receive energy award

Posted on

Members of the Energy Projects team at Grand Valley were recognized August 1 with the “Creating a Sustainable Future Together” award by Armstrong and Merlo Energy.

The award was based on a three-phase project in which Grand Valley’s Energy Project team installed a steam eye system which has saved a significant amount on energy costs. Grand Valley was cited as one of the most steam trap active universities in the country.
