2019 Holiday Shutdown

switch off turn down unplug close

Climate action – it’s up to all of us! Big or small, every action counts.

DYK?

 Switch off, turn down, unplug, and close are great ways to

  • Use resources well
  • Reduce impact on the climate
  • Be a climate activist

Just taking a few moments to turn off lights and devices, unplug things that don’t need to be running over the holidays, and closing blinds/curtains adds up! How much? Enough to power multiple homes for a month. Really!

Take a little time to fill in a holiday shutdown list, and we'll crunch the numbers to show estimated energy avoidance.

We want to show some appreciation for your climate action virtuosity!

Fill in and submit a holiday shutdown checklist will get you entered into a draw for some fun prizes.

Live in Residence?  We’ve got vouchers for the Campus Store or Food Services (winner’s choice) that could be yours.

Work here?   We have a remote control power cube, reusable cutlery + Food Service vouchers, and a reusable hot beverage container + Food Services voucher that you could win.
