July 23, 2012

Little relief from the heat is in sight according to the latest forecasts.

As the heat continues this week, employees are asked to continue energy curtailment actions.
As such, employees are urged to continue the energy curtailment efforts that have helped the medical center keep stress off the campus cooling system.

Such efforts already have helped UNMC save more than $250,000 this summer.

To help with this effort, employees can:

  • 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.
