In December 2008, PLU spent almost $23,000 for electricity in the residence halls (which doesn`t include South or Kreidler). $23,000! Can you believe it?
Just to put it in perspective, that is about the cost of your tuition for a year at PLU… Spent in a month… On just electricity.
The more surprising thing is, two of the halls who were given smart strips in round 1 of the unPLUg competition INCREASED their electricity bills this month!
Check out the cost differences from December 08 to December 09
Harstad: saved $94.87
Hinderlie/Hong: saved $108.81
Foss: saved $486.50
Stuen/Ordal: saved $137.66
Pflueger: lost $93.20
Tstad: lost $86.66
Let us hear your thoughts, Lutes! Did you know that we spend this much money on electricity every month? What can we do to encourage people to save energy?
