Green Cup Challenge, First Week Update
The FIRST WEEK of our 2018 Green Cup Energy Challenge is complete and here are the results for our competing dorms.
Phoenix dormitory, the reigning champs, may be resting on their laurels! With only a 3.9% reduction they have a long way to go to catch up to our runner up, the energy conscious EOS dorm, who have reduced their energy use by 12.2%. The Grove is many kilowatts ahead with a reduction of 27.7%!
Our campus buildings and facilities are really struggling. Rather than a decrease we have seen an increase in energy use across science and art buildings, library and offices, and the dining commons. Those leaving their offices and classrooms for the weekend should consider shutting down computers and unplugging/turning off multi-plugs.
