Energy Reduction and Sustainability

There are a number of steps that each of us can take to reduce the amount of energy we use. These include:
  • Turning off televisions, computers and other appliances when not in use
  • Using compact fluorescent lights (CFL) whenever possible.
  • Turn off lights whenever you leave your room
  • Use double sided copying whenever possible.
  • Report thermostats that don‘t appear to be working to the Facilities department.
  • Use Energy Star appliances.
  • Make certain that refrigerators are emptied and turned off during breaks.
  • Become involved with the Energy Reduction Task Force.
  • Use drying racks to dry clothes.
  • Take only as much food as you are going to eat. Better to go back for seconds than throw away excess food.
