The green labs program has provided more rebates for energy efficient equipment in fiscal year 2020 than any other year in the program’s history. Labs received rebates for more efficient ultra-low temperature (ULT) freezers and biosafety cabinets to support new biosafety labs opening specifically to conduct novel COVID-19 research. To supplement the rebate program, a new ULT freezer maintenance webpage highlights how to properly care for ULT freezers and includes a policy that can be posted to the freezer door. Each action listed on the policy in eligible for points in My Cardinal Green and will ensure that the freezer is operating as efficiently as possible.
