Winter Shutdown & Energy Savings

Anonymous (not verified) -- Thu, 11/29/2018 - 4:22pm


As finals begin, the Office of Sustainability is preparing for an energy-saving winter break.  

The University will be in "shutdown" mode from December 17th to January 3rd.  Please help us to reduce energy consumption during this time by checking these items off your list before you leave your room or office for the holidays:

  • Turn thermostats to "HEAT" and set at 55 degrees.
  • Turn off AND unplug all electronics, including mini-fridges and chargers. Electricity is still consumed by an electronic device that is plugged in, even through it is turned off or in standby mode.
  • Turn off all lights (including lamps and decorative lights).
  • Close any windows and blinds.
