Thanksgiving Break Energy Reminders

Posted November 20, 2017

   
With only a few days to prepare for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, the DMACC Energy Conservation Program wanted to take this opportunity to share a few energy conservation reminders. 

Before you leave for the Thanksgiving holiday please take time to turn off your office or workspace computer, monitor, printer, classroom projector, lights and any other non-essential electronic devices.  Please take time to lower all workspace area blinds and turn the slats to the down position. This acts as a layer of insulation reducing heat loss.  If you are the last instructor in a classroom on Wednesday afternoon, please turn off your classroom computer, monitor, projector and lights before leaving the classroom. 

Your collective efforts have created an energy award winning organization at DMACC that has been recognized by Energy Star, the Iowa State Energy Center, and Cenergistic.  With your help our energy conservation program has avoided over $2.2 million in utility costs since inception in 2012. 

Thank you in advance for your help.  Have a safe and enjoyable holiday weekend. 

To learn more about the DMACC Energy Conservation Program please click on the Energy Star logo at the bottom of the DMACC Homepage, or visit the DMACC Energy Conservation Program link found at https://go.dmacc.edu/green/conservation/Pages/welcome.aspx.

If you have any questions about our program please contact Jay Tiefenthaler, DMACC Director of Energy, Safety and Security, at 515-964-6612 or by email at jmtiefenthaler3@dmacc.edu.
