Unplug electronic equipment each night when not in use. E.g. sensors in common areas; add sensors elsewhere; turn off printers; incadescent bulbs w LEDs; chargers Organize energy saving competition on campus and residential halls. Paperless conference Teach, train, do: Students get involved with "training" on energy savings Educate users about lighting, equipment and heating/cooling costs. Educate stakeholders about cost of transportation when commuting, taking short area trips, and operations on campus. Close classroom doors when HVAC is operating. Encourage people to not use the handicap / automatic door buttons if they do not need to. Task Group 2 - Office Activities Program all computers to energy saver mode. Eliminate fax cover sheets. Recycling: paper, cardboard, batteries, toner and ink cartridges; students “Encouraging” electronic communications, file sharing, etc., instead of paper copies Reduce/eliminate posters around campus generated by campus sources…use our technology instead Is there a way to verify FAX receipts without printing of an whole page? Do more forms online………..procard statements, MERFS, etc. use lots of paper Replace some traditional mailings with electronic mailings Refill/recharge all sizes of printer cartridges. Greater use of "all in one" category of office equipment and subsequent replacement of single use equipment. Provide filtered water to each building with a fun UCO refillable water bottle Task Group 3 - Community Service Work with Chartwells to donate leftover foods (they do this w/ Food Bank) Task Group 4 - Electronic, Copiers, Printing Reduce printing by keeping data in electronic form, making double-sided copies and reusing printed pages for note paper. Use 1/4 or 1/2 sheets for handouts. Reduce number of computers turned on in computer labs during periods of least use. Encourage "bring lunch to work" or "eat on campus" days to minimize off campus driving at lunch. More efficient utilization of property and equipment before it is transferred to surplus. Encourage employee carpooling in addition to student ride share program. Incent Common residents to be more conscientious with energy usage.
