William E. Bagnell, associate vice chancellor for Campus Operations, notified the campus community that May 31 is the likely utility peak day for the month, which means that conservation efforts are essential.
Faculty and staff are asked to turn off all unnecessary electrical equipment including lights, radios, calculators, printers, copiers, computers, monitors and coffee makers. Those with windows are asked to lower blinds to reduce cooling loss.
Bagnell reminded everyone to turn off all equipment when leaving for the day.
