Montana State University is big. Montana State University uses a lot of energy every day. Montana State University is committing to cut energy use, and the project, which was unveiled yesterday in Helena, will begin this summer.

Montana State University wants to get started this summer on a million-dollar plan to save energy on the Bozeman campus, starting with replacing lights in the Brick Breeden Fieldhouse.

An outline of the plan, which would cost up to $9 million, was shared Thursday at a Montana Board of Regents meeting in Helena.

Replacing the old fieldhouse lights is expected to save about 30 percent on energy costs and improve the quality of lighting, said Dan Stevenson, MSU's assistant director of facility services.

The university's plan also calls for replacing lights in the Hapner, Langford and Hedges dorms, and replacing windows and room climate controls in Hapner and Langford.

All the projects would be completed during the summer.
