Shut down computers, electronics for Thanksgiving break

Our faculty and staff members are pitching in to save energy, and for that, we’re thankful! As you prepare for the holiday, take a few minutes to ready your area for the long shutdown. To make sure that we do not waste any energy over this holiday weekend please remember to do the following:

  • Remember to shut off all computers and monitors in your classroom when classes are done
  • Before you close that door for the long weekend, LOOK AROUND, is there anything still powered ON that doesn’t need to be?
    • Turn off your computer, monitor, speakers, and local printers
    • Unplug chargers for cell phone, camera, and other electronics
    • If possible, empty and unplug any refrigerators and other small appliances
  • Close curtains and blinds to help retain building heat
  • Remember that personal portable space heaters are not permitted in college buildings unless provided by the Facilities office. If you have a space heater, please be sure to take it home during the break

For energy inquiries or troubleshooting heating/cooling issues please contact Dorothy Sadony at 4700 or
