If you're caught in the act of greenness, you will get a tasty token of thanks from UNMC LiveGreen and facilities, management and planning.
If you don't "get caught" today, don't fret. LiveGreen personnel will patrol the campus periodically throughout the rest of the summer to find employees who:
- 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.
"While we may get some temporary relief from the heat here and there, the hot weather will persist this summer," Hansen said. "As such, we will look for ways to show our appreciation for those who continue to commit to energy-efficient behavior."
We started using lower lighting levels throughout our clinic, admin offices and Resource Center. The gals in the Resource Center even double check throughout the day if the Olson Center classroom lights are turned off. Thanks for supporting this and giving tips throughout the summer!
