You have the force…
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.
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!
