Through Executive Order No. 987, effective August 2, 2006, the Chancellor of the California State University (CSU) system has delegated the authority to each CSU campus president for implementing the CSU energy conservation policy. This supersedes, but contains similar goals to CSU Executive Order 917.

Executive Order No. 987 requires each CSU to reduce energy consumption at each CSU by 15% by the end of Fiscal Year 2009/2010 as compared to Fiscal Year 2003/2004. This is expected to be accomplished by an integrated design approach including sustainable materials and practices in both new and existing CSU facilities.

San Jose State, through it's MBCx and Lighting projects is already well on its way to meeting this goal.
