Holiday Shutdown

Each year the trusty ‪‎UVic‬ Facilities team turns off the lights and heat in our buildings for the holidays. The main UVic boiler uses up to 700 GJ every day durring the winter months to keep our campus running. This is the equivalent of 35 tonnes of CO2e each day. By turning off the lights and heat we expects to save over 100 tonnes of GHGs.

We are asking students, staff, and facility to participate in the holiday shutdown too by turning off your office equipment. These small actions will help us reduce waste this year.
