The Energy Challenge is ON!!!

Contributed by Marian Brown on 03/31/2014 

Calling all on-campus residents: the Energy Challenge is underway! RHA and Sustainability at Ithaca are co-sponsoring this campaign to see which residence hall can reduce its electricity consumption the most over the next two weeks. There will be prizes awarded to the hall with the lowest per capita energy use during the period and for the hall that has the greatest percentage reduction during the Challenge. The Challenge period started yesterday, March 30, and will end on Saturday, April 12, with the winners announced at RHA's Earth Fest on April 15. Check out the informational poster on the bulletin board in your hall - or refer to the special Energy Challenge Installments in your bathroom stalls - for tips on how to easily reduce your energy use, not just during the Energy Challenge period, but all the time! How low can you go?
