Campus electricity demand reduction — July 13

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.

With high temperatures and humidity levels continuing across the province, today (Wednesday, July 13) will be the university's seventh Electricity Demand Response Day of the summer. 

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. 

Thursday, July 14 has the potential to be a response day; however, a separate notification will be issued tomorrow to either confirm or cancel the response. 

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