By sealing up the leaks and adding an appropriate amount of insulation, you can save 15% - 20% on your heating bills this winter.
Choctaw Conservation Award
The winner of the Choctaw Energy Award for the October 1, 2014 to December 31, 2014 quarter is the Department of Teacher Education and Leadership.

Also, the department's hallways and classrooms are monitored during the day to ensure that lights are not burning unnecessarily.The improvement has been the results of teamwork between the staff, faculty, administration, and the housekeeping team.
The next winner will be announced in April, 2015. The award period is January 1, 2015 to March 31, 2015. Please remember that every effort counts. Everyone can contribute by being aware of energy-saving opportunities in offices, work rooms, classrooms, and hallways.
