Bring pride to your wood-frame or program house! Do it in the Dark is Wesleyan’s wood-frame energy competition! Make a conscious effort to reduce your energy consumption and you and your housemates could win gift certificates to a restaurant of your choice in Middletown! We reward participants in two categories: lowest overall consumption (controlled for the houses’ square footage and outside temperature) and the greatest percentage of decline in consumption in the same house during the same month, last year (to control for specific differences in each house’s efficiency). The winners for January have just been calculated and the winners in these categories were 6 Fountain Ave and 37 Home Ave, respectively. Congratulations, energy-savers!
Make April the month that your house wins! The results will continue to be posted on wesustainability.blogspot.com, check it out to see how your house does and get energy saving tips!
