Campus electricity demand reduction – May 28

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 during the spring, summer and fall of 2018. Each Monday a program forecast will be issued for the week ahead. A separate notice will be issued the morning of any potential (yellow) dates to confirm or cancel the response. 

Due to unseasonably warm temperatures across the province, the first response of the year will occur today (Monday, May 28) between 3 pm and 9 pm. Please consult the attached newsletter for a complete list of buildings that will be participating in this response. If you are interested in contributing to this response, please turn off non-essential lighting and equipment during the response period. 
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 by email.
