UMP Electricity Savings measures include replacing of conventional tungsten bulbs and inflorescent tubes with energy efficient units. For street lightings and compound lightings where the sodium bulbs used were of high wattage we replaced them with LED (light emission diodes) bulbs, more than halving the electricity used but providing equivalent amount of lux. Motion sensors were installed in toilets and in remote places which only activate the lights during night time when there are people or movements around. Digital power consumption meters are installed in selected faculties and buildings to record automatically electricity consumption for every 15 minutes for energy consumption analysis. All these initiatives are executed in phases based on the annual allocated budget designated for the greening and sustainability of the two campuses, and are still continuing.

Currently, UMP has managed to save an average of 46,672 kWh monthly for the Pekan Campus, amounting to 20.1% savings, with an equivalent CO2 emission reduction of 34,070 kg monthly in 2015.

The electricity saving initiatives in the main (Pekan) campus undertaken by the university since 2012, which are still undergoing.
