Power Down: Your Holiday Gift to UNH (and the Planet)


If you could reduce your electric bill and your carbon footprint simply and painlessly, would you?

Of course you would.  And this month, in the spirit of giving, you have a chance to do the same for UNH. It’s as easy as powering down – turning off all electronic devices in your office – before you leave for the winter break. And because electronics can draw up to 30 percent of their total energy use while turned off but still plugged in, it’s important to shut them down at the source, by switching off power strips and unplugging appliances like printers and copiers.
