Energy conservation update
Since we began our conservation efforts, we've seen a year-over-year reduction in electricity and water consumption. In FY14, electricity dropped by 2 percent and water consumption decreased by 16.8 percent. Gas consumption increased by 0.43 percent, but this increase is attributed to the arctic blasts that created a colder winter in FY14 as compared to the same period in FY13. Thank you to everyone for doing your part. For a refresher on how you can help save energy on campus, read the energy conservation tips.
