November is here and it’s time yet again for CWRU unplugged. During the annual Residential Hall Energy and Sustainability Competition, residence halls and Greek houses compete to see which can reduce their building’s energy consumption the most from Nov. 1 to Nov. 15.
The residence hall or Greek house with the highest combined points wins; points can be garnered by tallying the:
Greatest energy reduction;
Greatest number of pledge signers; and
Greatest number of event attendees over the two weeks.
All residence halls and Greek houses can participate in the energy reduction event. Any student on or off campus can make the pledge, attend events and be entered to win a raffle prize and help their residence hall earn points. Try to beat last year’s winner, Kusch House, which reduced their energy usage by 23%.
How can you participate?
Get your friends and suitemates to reduce your building’s electricity use by turning off the lights, taking the stairs, unplugging devices or air drying clothes.
