Simple steps to save energy on campus during Winter Break

Faculty and staff can help the University save energy on campus throughout winter break by following three simple suggestions from the Office of Sustainability.

  • Shutdown and/or unplug power cords for electronics and appliances, including monitors, desktop printers, coffee makers, mini-refrigerators and microwave ovens.
  • Turn lights off or down to safety lighting levels.
  • Close inactive fume hood sashes and power down non-essential equipment in labs.
