Power of You campaign introduces building energy conservation challenge
Join the Power of You Lights Out Challenge. No sign-up or registration required.
The only participation required is conserving energy in unoccupied spaces on October 16. Turn off office lights when leaving for lunch or by flipping a switch when leaving a classroom.
Which building will show the greatest energy reduction during the one-hour challenge? Or have the most occupant participation? Participate on October 16 and tune in to find out.
Results will be posted on the Power of You website following the challenge.
Warm-up for March’s Earth Hour by powering down now. Even flipping a switch in a space with occupancy sensors can save 30 minutes of energy consumed by unnecessary lighting.
Date: Wednesday, Oct. 16
Time: 12 noon to 1 p.m.
Location: all academic buildings.
