Each student received an excel spreadsheet that had their baseline usage, weekly usage update and what they could expect their monthly electricity bill to be based on the previous weeks usage. Students were also able to check-out a Watts up Pro meter to learn about the electricity consumption of their appliances.Together, the students saved 37,497 kWh of electricity in just 3 weeks solely based on changing their behaviors. Imagine what the savings could be if we all paid a little bit more attention to our electricity consumption habits year-round?
If you are interested in checking out a Watts Up Meter to inventory your appliances, the Office of Sustainability has several to lend out for a short period of time. All you have to do is find the office (and arrange a pick-up time).
