In support of Earth Hour 2014, the Okanagan Sustainability Office is hosting a One Hour, No Power challenge on March 27.
No signup or registration is required — participation is as easy as turning off lights in unoccupied spaces. Turn off lights in all offices, classrooms, meeting rooms, washrooms and labs when they’re not being used.
Even flipping a switch in a space with occupancy sensors can save 30 minutes of energy consumed by unnecessary lighting.
Which building will show the greatest energy reduction during the one-hour challenge? Or have the most occupant participation? Challenge results will be posted on the Power of You website once all the data has been tabulated.
This event is a follow up to the successful Lights out Challenge in October and the Power of You campaign’s power down theme.
Date: Thursday, March 27
Time: 12 noon to 1 p.m.
Location: All major buildings on campus
