Tip of the week
Want to save money on your home energy bill this winter? Lower all of your setpoints a little while you are at home, or away. Use a blanket at home instead of turning the thermostat up. Remember, a lower setting is better.
Choctaw Conservation Award
The winner of the Choctaw Energy Award for the July 1, 2014 to September 30, 2014 is the Office of Accounts Payable and Purchasing. This office, under the leadership of Dana Elmore, continues to support our energy conservation programs by recording "complete shutdown" status at each work station at a very high rate. In fact, this office was 100% over the tracking period from July to September.
The next winner will be announced at the beginning of the spring semester in January . The audits will cover Ocober 1, 2014 to December 31, 2014. Please remember that every effort counts. Everyone can contribute by being aware of energy-saving opportunities in offices, work rooms, classrooms, and hallways.
