Higher temperatures mean higher energy use (and costs) for UCSD. The combination of record high temperatures and the addition of 3 new buildings (EBU-3, Natural Sciences and the most recent Leichtag Bldg) in the past year, set record high electrical demands and consumption peaks last week.
We should all prepare for a warmer than normal summer season, and everyone at UCSD should take this time at the beginning of the season to ‘tune-up’ their conservation skills. It is estimated that one-third of all the power consumed on campus is in control of the end user. In general, anything that is not absolutely necessary should be turned off. Specific measures may be found on the following web link : http://blink.ucsd.edu/go/energy or contact Physical Plant Services Customer Service Representative Wendy Schiefer (x440317) or Energy Manager John Dilliott (x22807) for further help.
Thank you for conserving!
