LYNCHBURG—Randolph College is one of four colleges nationwide to receive funding from the Jessie Ball duPont Fund for energy conservation efforts.

The $104,000 grant will allow Randolph College to install electric sub-metering stations in 13 of the College’s largest buildings and conduct a full energy audit of campus. These projects will help the College further its goal of energy conservation.

The Jessie Ball duPont Fund’s energy conservation initiative has awarded $1.5 million to 15 small liberal arts colleges since it began in 2009. The initiative, which supports institutions’ efforts to increase environmental sustainability, is part of The Jessie Ball duPont Fund, an organization that has awarded $291 million in grants since 1977.
