TURN DOWN FOR WATT officially begins tomorrow! Turn Down For Watt is an energy competition between the Residence Hall on campus. Every week we will have a theme that will give tips on how to reduce energy AND learn some lifestyle tips. We will also announce what building is in the lead. Check out our Facebook event page for details, here!
Hey, you there! Do you live in a residence dorm on Virginia Tech campus? Yes, you say? Well then, you will definitely want to participate in this fun, one-of-a kind COMPETITION that is about to kick start on campus NEXT WEEK! But wait—maybe you don’t live on campus? No problem, you should learn about this exciting new event anyway and help us spread the message to anyone that you know who does so they can bring their Residence Hall to ULTIMATE GLORY!
Starting Monday, October 20, 2014, The Office of Energy and Sustainability at Virginia Tech, in partnership with Students for Clean Energy at Virginia Tech and Housing and Residence Life is hosting the first annual TURN DOWN FOR WATT (TD4W) energy reduction competition.
All residence halls and houses on Oak Lane will be competing to reduce their energy usage the most, bring honor to their residence hall, and take home the 6-foot tall Green Man Trophy! Rumor has it that a sweet money fund will also be awarded to the winning building for them to use at their choosing. The hint is to participate in TD4W for the whole month and find out for yourself!
To switch things up, each week the competition will focus on a new energy saving theme. The themes are as follows:
Mon. Oct 20 - Sat. Oct 25
Common Space and Lounge Electronics
“Black out and go to bed”
Sun. Oct 26 - Sat. Nov 1
“Pull it out, think of your future!”
Sun. Nov 2 - Sat. Nov 8
Full Loads of Laundry
“Always stick in a full load”
Sun. Nov 9 - Fri. Nov 14
Turning Lights Off When You Leave
“No one likes being turned on and left”
WHO WILL TRIUMPH?!
WHO WILL FAIL?!
Turn off your lights, unplug your electronics, and make your hall the GRAND CHAMPION OF THE WORLD!!!
