All told, we saw an average of 12% energy savings across all of our main campus buildings. Nineteen main campus buildings saw savings between 128%, and three buildings actually increased usage from last fall (anywhere between 717%). For those of you in Quarry & Spinner calculating your energy use is difficult as it is through another power provider and the billing is set up in a way that would take a lot of time to calculate. Since we did not see high rates participation in any of the events or other ways to earn points I did not calculate the energy use.
Using a simplified formula (with a base of $.12/kwh) we figured that we saved over $2,900 worth of electricity during February (for main campus res halls). These savings will be transferred to student scholarships this year.
This year marked the 4th time we held the KillAWatt Challenge, which allowed us to look at back at the cumulative impact of the event. Take a look at these results.
So until next year…. keep on saving!
