Energy Management has teamed up with the Energy Efficiency Student Alliance’s (EESA) Power Police to help University employees and departments save energy.
Even when your office electronics are turned off, most are still using some electricity. “Vampire” energy sucks up to 10% of an office’s total energy consumption.
Upon completion of your building’s recommissioning project, the Power Police can reduce Vampire energy by installing easily accessible power strips at workstations. This will cut-off your workspace's Vampire energy with the flip of a switch. Timers that automatically power down shared equipment like water coolers and printers will also be installed in offices.
We hope you’ll choose to take part in the effort to make the U of M more energy efficient!
About EESA: The Energy Efficiency Student Alliance is a partnership between the Minnesota Public Interest Research Group (MPIRG), the Active Energy Club (AEC) and other U of M student groups passionate about reducing campus energy use.
