2017 Energy Competition Winners

April 18, 2017

Congratulations to Lincoln for winning the Lincoln vs. Morrill energy competition! Lincoln saw kWh per day drop from 2779 to 2664, a drop of 4.1%. Morrill's usage also dropped from 2858 to 2848, a drop of 0.4%. With today's electric rate, this works out to nearly $4100 per year, if the savings persisted all year.

 

Lincoln will be recognized with a trophy to showcase their energy saving efforts!

 

Here are some Green Buckeye energy saving tips:

  • Turn off the lights when you leave the room
  • Turn off your electronics overnight
  • Unplug your electronics when not in use-and improve the life of your electronics in the process!
  • In hot weather, set your thermostat to 72°F-75°F
  • In cold weather, set your thermostat to 68°F-72°F
  • Do NOT blast the heat or air to change the room temperature rapidly- furnaces and air conditioners do not work faster or harder to warm or cool a room this way. It will take the same amount of time as setting it to the desired temperature.
