|Please help conserve energy|
Each holiday break, the University does its part to conserve energy by cutting back on utility consumption. Until Jan. 7, ventilation systems in classroom areas and other unused areas will be turned off or their thermostats will be set back to 60 degrees, depending on the automation capabilities for each area. Office areas will remain at their normal setpoints and schedules.
We would appreciate the assistance of the University community in saving energy. If there are any items that are not being used during the break we ask that you please shut them off. Also, because we do not have automation in all areas, we ask that if your department has an area that will not be used during the break that you would please lower the thermostat setpoint to 60 degrees.
We would appreciate your help with this. The University does this to save dollars on energy and to help offset the recent increase in utility costs, much like you would do at your homes when you are away. If you find an area you are using to be at an uncomfortable temperature or have any other special needs, please contact the Communications Center at 777-2591 and they will assist you. Thanks for your cooperation and have a Happy Holiday!
