How You Can Contribute
- Remember to turn off A/V equipment whenever possible. An A/V tower draws between 2000 and 2500 watts - as much as 38 laptops.
- Manage ‘vampire devices’. Unplug them, or use a smart power strip, which can cut energy to such devices and save $200 per year in energy costs.
- Program your thermostat at 68 degrees Fahrenheit or lower for the winter.
- Ask your Facilities Superintendent if there has been a night survey in your building, and if so, ask to see the recommendations.
