Reduce Your Use!

Reduce your electricity use with the American University energy competition, October 8-28, 2017! The campus-wide competition challenges students, staff, and faculty to turn off lights, unplug electronics, and use daylight to reduce your building's energy use. The #AUEnergyComp has two divisions: residence halls and academic/office buildings. Winning buildings will achieve the greatest electricity reduction by percentage.

Join us to reduce energy through your behavior change. Throughout the competition, The Office of Sustainability will host games and education events to help the community conserve.
