Georgia College and State University in Milledgeville is getting a large portion of stimulus dollars set aside for energy saving projects.

The nearly $2 million is more than any other public college or university in the state is getting. GCSU will use the funds to install individual utility meters and replace outdated heating and air conditioning systems.

Officials say the changes will save the school more than $120,000 a year in utility costs. Earlier this year the State received a total of $63 million in stimulus money to fund 135 energy efficiency projects across Georgia.
