Choctaw Energy Savers
Tip of the week
When purchasing holiday lights, look for LED lights because they use less energy than traditional light strings.
It takes less energy to reheat holiday meals than when cooking them the first time. Try cooking larger meals and reheating the leftovers.
Purchase Christmas gifts that meet energy efficient guidelines set by the EPA. Look for the ENERGY STAR labels
Choctaw Conservation Award
The winners of the Choctaw Energy Award for the July 1, 2013 to September 30, 2013 period is the Office for Advancement located on the Third Floor East in Nelson Hall. The staff members in this area work in the offices of Alumni Relations, Development, and Public Relations. Under the leadership of Dr. Bill Townsend, the staff members manage the details of energy conservation in their own offices as well as the common spaces such as closets and work rooms. Receiving "Complete Shutdown" status during energy audits is the rule, not the exception, in these offices. Congratulations to all staff members in the Office for Advancement.
The next winner will be announced in the first week of January. The audits will cover October 1, 2013 to December 31, 2013. Please remember that every effort counts. Everyone can contribute by being aware of energy-saving opportunities in offices, work rooms, classrooms, and hallways.
