Earth Month Energy Conservation Challenge

Posted by Emily Dickett on May 9, 2023

During Earth Month, iSEE hosted their biannual campus wide sustainability challenge. The Energy Conservation Challenge had more than 70 participants who carefully tracked their energy conservation over the entire month. Overall, the group increased their average weekly point total by 65% over the course of the month. This means the group took on 65% more energy conservation techniques such as hang drying clothes, unplugging appliances, installing more efficient light bulbs, writing to the University to encourage them to follow the Illinois Sustainable Investment Act, attending Illini Lights Out, using public transportation, and more. See iSEE's Contests and Challenges page for more details.
