The second week of the Case Western Reserve University Unplugged Competition is complete. Through this competition, students are challenged to reduce their residence hall or Greek house’s energy consumption. The residence hall or Greek house with the largest percent energy reduction is the winner.
Over the first week, Sherman was in first place with a 13% reduction in energy consumption. Village Houses 6/7 were in second place and Village Houses 1/2 were in third place. In the second week, Village House 6/7 stands in first place with a 14.9% reduction, Pierce is in second place, and Village House 4 is in third place. The race is tight—keep pushing to get your building to the top. Find live standings and percent reductions on the Office of Energy and Sustainability website.
There are three weeks left before the final results are recorded. Residents in the winning hall will receive a custom tote bag, reusable water bottle and a Mitchell’s Ice Cream scoop card. Individuals also are eligible to win gift cards, bento boxes, inflatable solar lanterns, and more by filling out the sustainability pledge, which enters them into a raffle.
