Energy Conservation

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

With your help, conserving energy can reduce operations costs and soften the college’s impact on the environment. Here are some ways in which you can make a difference:

  • Turn off appliances when not in use, including lights, computers, and other electronics. If possible set the computer to an energy saving mode.
  • Use energy efficient appliances whenever possible. Use the minimum necessary wattage in light fixtures.
  • Don’t leave water running.
  • Take shorter showers. This can significantly reduce the energy used to heat water.
  • Use cold water and cold water detergent when doing laundry.
  • Use hand towels as opposed to the paper towels.
