Energy Conservation Project Underway at GSC

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: January 23, 2015

For More Information:
Glenville State College
Public Relations Department
(304) 462-4115

GLENVILLE, WV – Glenville State College has partnered with Energy Systems Group (ESG) to implement comprehensive energy efficiency and building improvements that have reduced energy costs, modernized building systems and technologies, and enhanced the overall campus environment. These improvements are anticipated to result in annual savings over $176,200 during the 15-year term of the contract with ESG.

A wide range of energy conservation and infrastructure improvement measures were implemented in 13 campus buildings. Some of those improvements included: indoor and outdoor lighting, upgraded controls, HVAC improvements and replacements, window replacements, fire suppression system installation, pool operations upgrades, implementation of a campus energy policy, and computer-based power management.

Among various updates around campus, the GSC pool had its filtration and heating systems upgraded in addition to having new windows installed in the entire Health & Physical Education Building

Among various updates around campus, the GSC pool had its filtration and heating systems upgraded in addition to having new windows installed in the entire Health & Physical Education Building

“This collaboration has allowed us to do a variety of different things. Not only were we able to recognize the economic savings by making the improvements, but it gave us an opportunity to be one of the first central West Virginia higher education institutions to partner in this way,” said Glenville State College President Dr. Peter Barr.

Physical Plant Director Tom Ratliff oversaw the project, which has been called the largest campus wide initiative undertaken to improve all campus facilities. “Now we’re able to monitor and adjust power usage in real-time and we can make those energy savings every day. The facilities are not only more comfortable to be in but the aesthetics of the Physical Education Building and the Heflin Administration Building show a dramatic change with just their window replacements. This project has been a multifaceted approach on how to make our campus better,” said Ratliff.

By implementing these key energy conservation measures, Glenville State College will save $2.6 million in total energy costs, 1,425,000 kilowatt-hours in electric energy, and 130,000 therms in natural gas over the term of the contract with ESG. Glenville State College will reduce its carbon footprint by 1,676 metric tons of carbon dioxide. That footprint reduction equates to generating enough electricity to power 153 homes, removing emissions from 353 passenger vehicles, or planting 1,374 acres of forest.

“One of the huge benefits of this undertaking was the way that the awareness spread across campus. Students, faculty, and staff have seen that we are taking proactive steps to be sustainable and they have echoed that all around the campus. We have seen an interest in conservation and recycling that may not have been there before,” added Barr.

The partnership with ESG to become more energy efficient joins sustainability plans GSC already had implemented. Some of those initiatives included installing occupancy sensing lighting controls, trayless dining in the college cafeteria, the use of fuel saving mini pickups by the maintenance department, and a campus-wide recycling drive for plastic bottles and aluminum cans.

Asturian-American Painters Showcased in GSC Gallery

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:  January 15, 2015

For more information:
Glenville State College
Public Relations and Marketing
(304) 462-4115

GLENVILLE, WV—Glenville State College is currently showcasing the paintings of artist Art Zoller Wagner, but with a twist. His exhibit also includes pieces by his mother Honnie Wagner and his grandfather Emilio Fernandez for a dynamic show that encompasses around 100 years of culture and history in West Virginia’s Asturian communities that got their start in the early 1900s. The show is on display in the GSC Fine Arts Center Spears Gallery.

The exhibit titled ‘Three Generations of Asturian-American Painters’ shows the works of three generations within one immigrant family of realist painters. Beginning with an enterprising Spanish immigrant to West Virginia around 1917, continuing with the retrospective reflections expressed by his daughter, and extending to his grandson, whose introspective works explore longing and connection. “We offer this visual journey as a metaphor for the multigenerational immigrant experience in West Virginia,” said Art Wagner.

Asturias, a region along the northern coast of Spain, saw many of its residents come to the United States due to high unemployment and punishing labor conditions during the early 1900s. A significant number of Asturian’s ended up in Harrison County, West Virginia where they made their homes and worked in zinc smelting factories.

“This exhibit is of great historical and cultural significance for Glenville State College. We are honored and excited to showcase this work for the campus and community,” said GSC Associate Professor of Art Liza Brenner.

The show is open to the public and will run until Friday, March 6th. The gallery is open Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. and one hour before all GSC Fine Arts events. An opening reception is scheduled to take place on Monday, January 26th from 5:00-7:00 p.m. in the Fine Arts Center gallery.
