Simple Energy Conservation Tips
The FHSU campus continues to look for ways to conserve energy. Here are five simple Energy Conservation Opportunities (ECOs) that everyone can practice.
- Shut off unoccupied lighting:
Please remember to ALWAYS shut off lights when you leave an area. Even if the lighting is fluorescent lighting, it is cheaper to have the lights off.
- Shut off unused computers and equipment:
Always shut off your computers and equipment before you leave for the day. When these items are turned on, they consume electricity.
- Do not turn on computers in computer labs unless they are needed.
A room full of powered on computers wastes energy if only a few at one time are being used. Please turn them on only when they are needed.
- Report excessive temperature variations:
Please report excessive temperature variations in your area to the Physical Plant. If you believe the temperature falls outside of normal operations (68-72 degrees in the winter and 74-78 degrees in the summer), please contact the Physical Plant at 4424. It is very possible that something requires our attention.
- Remind others:
Please remind others to conserve energy and think green. Your part may seem small, but in the big picture, you do make a difference.
Please continue to look for other opportunities to reduce utility consumption in your work, study, living, recreation or learning space on campus.
