Show your energy-saving power: Turn Off The Lights for 1 hr

In support of 2017 Earth Hour, UBC Okanagan is hosting a campus one-hour Lights Out Challenge to support our Power of You “Lights Out” initiative on Thursday, March 23 from 12-1pm.

Conserve energy by turning off lights in unoccupied spaces. Even flipping a switch in a space with occupancy sensors can save 30 minutes of energy consumed by unnecessary lighting. No Sign-up or Registration Required: Participation is as easy as turning off the office light when leaving for lunch and by flipping a switch when leaving a classroom, laboratory or residence.

Which building will show the greatest energy reduction during the one-hour challenge? Or have the most occupant participation? Participate on March 23 and watch the for updates to find out! Results will be posted on the Power of You website following the initiative.

Date: Thursday, March 23, 2017
When: 12:00 – 1:00 pm
Where: All Academic and Administration Buildings.
Action: Turn off lights in unoccupied individual and common spaces: offices, classrooms, meeting rooms, washrooms, labs, etc.
