Here’s an email that I received from David Pinsky, a grad student at UNCW and member of the Environmental Concerns Organization.
“We have recently completed an assessment of electricity use in a large campus building. I don’t know about Charlotte, but UNCW leaves lights, computers, etc. on 24/7/365. The amount of energy, and money, wasted here is outrageous! Before presenting the data to the administration, I am garnering support from NC residents who believe this project is a worthwhile endeavor, in addition to asking the UNC System to be more responsible with natural resource use.
Our aim is to do an assessment of potential electricity savings in several buildings on campus.”
Let’s help UNCW and the UNC System conserve energy by signing their petition and getting your friends to sign their petition!
