Within you to reduce your energy usage!  UNC Asheville made a flashy video starring Flash, Energy Commander to encourage students to conserve energy during Campus Conservation Nationals.  UNC Asheville had five buildings participate, with some pretty steep competition.  As a campus, they saved 3,919 kWh of electricity and had 145 people make specific commitments online to a specific energy-saving action.


Watch other campuses’ videos and see what they did to energize students.

Overall Campus Conservation Nationals saved 1,739,046 kWh of electricity and $157,925, equivalent to taking 151 US homes off the grid for year!  Not to mention the 1,554,814 gallons of water, equaling 10,365 shower hours!
