Due to forecasted high temperatures and increased energy demands on the regional electric grid over the next several days, students, faculty and staff are asked to reduce electrical usage to the greatest extent possible, especially between 2:00 and 6:00 p.m. Conserving energy is everyone’s responsibility and helps the campus meet its climate commitments and reduces future energy costs.

Conservation Recommendations

  • Turn off lights when leaving a room
  • Turn off window AC units in unused spaces
  • Keep windows and doors closed in conditioned areas
  • Unplug any nonessential equipment and delay battery recharging
  • Shut down computers/printers when not in use (check with IT staff first for best practices)
  • Close fume hood sashes when not in use
  • Adjust thermostats to a more efficient setting

More tips and information are available on the Facilities & Services (F&S) website. For building temperature questions, contact the F&S Energy Management Control Center at fandsenergycomm@illinois.edu, or at 244-3783.
