Building Energy Challenge
Welcome to the Homepage for the OSU Building Energy Challenge!
The 3rd annual Building Energy Challenge will begin on February 6th! This year the challenge is kicking off at the same time as the Campus Conservation Nationals, which is the first college and university national energy and water reduction competition. Good luck to Residence Halls which will be participating in this competition. For all participating buildings the challenge will end on February 27th.
The Building Energy Challenge aims to reduce energy consumption through the combined effects of individual action by occupants of participating buildings. By using no-to-low cost actions such as turning off computers and lights, unplugging non-essential equipment, and replacing incandescent lamps with compact fluorescents (CFLs), we can significantly reduce our energy consumption. And we can have fun doing it!
Join us for our kick-off event at the MU Journey Room at Noon on February 6th. Games and snacks provided!
We encourage all buildings to try to save more energy than last year!
The total electricity savings from the 2011 OSU Building Energy Challenge: 14,627 kWh (approx. $780)
Think we can do it?
