Electricity demand response update

Campus Electricity Demand Reduction Notification for Monday, July 6th

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 temperatures and humidity climbing across the province, today will be our first Electricity Demand Response Day of the summer. Tuesday, July 7th also has the potential to be another response day; however, we will send a confirmation or cancellation notice tomorrow with an update.  Please consult the attached newsletter for for a complete list of buildings that will be participating 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 by e-mail.
