Keep up curtailment efforts

July 02, 2012

We got an unexpected break from the heat Friday but the forecast for the coming week calls for more extreme heat.

Employees are encouraged to continue the energy curtailment efforts that took place last week to help keep the stress off the campus cooling system.

The heat continues this week. Employees are asked to keep up with the energy curtailment efforts they started last week.
As the mercury rises into the high 90s today, employees are reminded to take the following steps to keep the load off the campus cooling system:
  • Close shades, blinds and curtains whenever possible to reduce solar heat gain;
  • Lower lighting levels where possible and turn off lights in unoccupied areas; and
  • Turn off and unplug all electrical equipment not in use (computers, coffee makers, printers, chargers, etc.), especially in offices.
