NC State University students, faculty and staff saved the university $288,590 in avoided energy costs during winter break. A campus-wide energy conservation program facilitated by NC State’s Energy Management Office, the Winter Holiday Energy Saving Initiative reduces energy use by lowering thermostat temperatures in unoccupied campus buildings and encouraging students, faculty and staff to turn off lights and office equipment, close doors and windows, and unplug all unnecessary electronics before leaving for winter break. These efforts generated $24,049 of savings per day during winter break for a total of nearly $2.5 million since the program launched in 2004. Read the Bulletin article.
