The annual Case Western Reserve University Campus Energy Contest kicked off on Halloween (Oct. 31) and will end Sunday, Nov. 18, at 11:59 p.m. This contest, organized by the CWRU Office for Sustainability student ambassadors, pits residence halls and many campus-owned Greek houses against each other in a competition to reduce electricity usage.
The winning building will have a solar-powered charging picnic table installed in the spring.
Sherman House, a first-year residence hall in North Residential Village, is leading the contest (as of Nov. 6) with a nearly 7 percent reduction in energy usage. Storrs House is coming in at second place at 5.43 percent, while Phi Kappa Psi/Delta Upsilon is in third with a 4.13 percent reduction.
To save even more kilowatt hours, remember to turn off lights, take the stairs and unplug electronic devices.
