Campus Electricity Demand Reduction - Aug. 4

In order to reduce electricity costs and contribute to the sustainability of the province’s energy system, the university is once again participating in an electricity peak demand management program this summer.

Due to persisting high temperatures and humidity levels across the province, today (Thursday, Aug. 4) will be our 15th Electricity Demand Response Day of the summer. Consult the attached newsletter for a complete list of buildings that will be rticipating in today’s response.

If you are interested in helping with the response, please turn off non-essential lighting during the day and shutdown your computers and other non-essential equipment before you leave at the end of the day.

More information about the electricity peak demand management program is available on the sustainability website. Those with questions may also contact Fixit at extension 77301 (internal), 613-533-6757 (external) or email.
