Before leaving the University for the festive break please remember to:
- switch off ALL electrical appliances at the wall
- switch off ALL lights
- turn down radiators to “1”
- do not leave anything on standby
Remember that energy use really does all add up, so switch off all equipment, including printers and mobile phone chargers as well as the obvious computer and lights! Turning off any equipment over the Christmas break will help us meet our carbon reduction targets and reduce cost to the University over the break.
Last year we avoided a whopping 249 tonnes of CO2 and saved £51,436 – a 27% reduction of the University’s total energy use! This was 50 tonnes more CO2 avoided than 2013/14, so hopefully we can continue the trend and avoid even more this Christmas
