Illinois Tech Winter Break Energy Conservation Results

Thank you to all who participated in conserving energy during the winter break by turning off lights and unplugging office equipment and space heaters. The past month’s utilities consumption is now available and we estimate that electricity consumption was reduced by 37% and natural gas consumption reduced by 16% during winter break compared to a similar occupied period on campus. If you have any questions or recommendations on how we can save even more energy next year, contact the Office of Campus Energy and Sustainability at
