For the third year, East Carolina University will go green again during the winter break using a utilities setback plan that saved the university more than $75,000 last year. The university will shut down at regular close of business Dec. 20 as part of a plan to allow employees a longer break and to help reduce utility expenditures and energy use. Buildings will reopen Jan. 2, when employees return to work. As you leave your workspace, everyone should be sure to turn off all devices that use electricity.
If for some reason, you find the need to work during this 12-day shutdown, beware – the heat in most buildings will be dropped back to 66 degrees. You can check a list of the buildings affected by the holiday temperature setback here.
ECU Physicians will follow a different holiday schedule and observe only December 24, 25, 26, 31 and January 1.
As for our Blog, we will also be taking a break and will see you again on January 7, 2014. Until then, we would like to wish you all a safe and joyful holiday season!!
