== The Project ==
HEIF <ref>
</ref> campus energy monitoring is a project that proposes to create an intern position, on Humboldt State University, which would be responsible for collecting analyzing and publishing specific energy usage for campus and community use. The idea was to create a program that was similar to UC Davis<ref></ref> where there is easy to access information that can be used. Previously it was though that electric and gas meters were not monitored and the information stored, however with the proposal of this project it was learned that in fact the data was stored. However the information was keep in a log book in HSU's Plant Operations, so that data was not available for student use.
