Energy Use at UNO
The University of New Orleans promotes sustainable energy use through a number of initiatives. We have installed energy-efficient light bulbs, a solar charging station, an electrical vehicle charging station, and more.
To find and visit these installations, visit our UNO Sustainability Map.
UNO students are resourceful
Using the solar-charging station located in the center of Pontchartrain Halls, a group of UNO students gave a memorable and musical performance.
As the locals say, "Only in New Orleans!"
When possible, try to take public transportation or ride your bike to reduce emissions from vehicles.
If you do choose to bike, plan your route using the New Orleans Bike Easy Online Map. It will show you the best routes for bike friendly travel.
Google Maps can help you plan your trip via public transportation, and the New Orleans Region Transportation Authority (RTA) has an app that gives real time updates on bus and streetcar location.
When you do have to drive, reduce trips by planning to do activities in the same area. When possible, car pool with friends instead of driving multiple vehicles.
