Save electricity by powering down before you leave

If you will be away from the office for the long weekend, help reduce Western Washington University's standing electricity load (also known as power drain or vampire load):
Before you leave, please
- Turn off computers, monitors and printers.
- Unplug chargers and small appliances (but not the refrigerator).
- Leave the thermostat at its normal setting.
- Close the windows and shades.
- Turn off lights and shut windows in unoccupied rooms.
- Remind colleagues and students to "power down" before leaving.
Enjoy the weekend!
