How low can you go?

Switch off this Christmas and see how low you can go.

You can win a prize for your School or Directorate by switching off as much electrical equipment as you can over the Christmas holiday period.

Two prizes of £250 are up for grabs: one for academic Operational Units and one for academic support Operational Units. The money must be used to host an event for staff using one of the University's catering suppliers.

The period assessed will be Monday 24 to Tuesday 25 December (during the typical non-operational hours period i.e. 23:00 on 24 December to 06:00 on 25 December).  This will be compared against the average consumption for the same period during the previous three weeks in December.

The winner for each prize will be the OU that achieved the greatest percentage reduction.

A number of resources have been produced to help promote the campaign in your area. Please click here to access.

Good luck and see how low you can go!
