Elevated Alert - High electric pricing - consumption reduction measures

Elevated Alert - High electric pricing - consumption reduction measures

GC is on Elevated Alert status as higher temperatures result in increased electric pricing above the normal operating price effective May 19th – 20th.   

The campus community is urged to reduce/eliminate usage of all non-essential lighting and equipment especially during the peak hours of 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Please do not just turn off, unplug everything not pertinent for use.

If you have access to windows, use the natural light. Turn lights off when you leave your office. Unplug computers, monitors, printers, copier machines, lab instruments, appliances and other equipment as you leave for the day. All of these activities will help tremendously.

The Office of Sustainability and the Department of Facilities Management would like to thank everyone for your cooperation and understanding in this matter. We urge you to assist with communications by passing this information along to the campus community. If you have comments or questions, please do not hesitate to call/email the following contacts:
