GLRPPR Sector Resource: You Have the Power

You Have the Power

In the summer of 2003, UB saved $10,000 in energy costs in a single day when faculty, staff and students responded to a statewide power crisis by reducing unnecessary energy consumption in their offices, labs and workspaces. This website contains numerous suggestions for individuals, offices and departments to save energy. The site includes sections on computers; lights; heating and cooling; windows and doors; equipment; reporting waste; computer lab operators and IT staff; home conservation; fast energy facts; buying green power; and green partners. The “You Have the Power” initiative poster and brochure are also available, as well as a link to UB Green, and umbrella web site for environmental activities at the State University of New York at Buffalo.
