Administrative Computing is currently assembling a list of administrative and academic computers, their model types and typically how much energy they consume. These numbers will be directed to Facilities Management where a calculation of how much energy is used will be converted into a dollar amount.
A list of administrative computers along with their back-up nights will be distributed to the Energy Work Study students. All administration will be asked to turn off computers along with printers, scanners, speakers etc., except for their back-up night. If an employee leaves a computer on, a “friendly reminder” will be left encouraging the user to be more energy aware.
Because of sensitive information on academic and some administrative computers, we will not ask for these computers to be shut down. Directions on how to put computers in a low power state and request that printers and scanners be shut down will be distributed. Students will not enter faculty or sensitive administrative offices for any reason.
Thank you for support and participation in this matter.
