How it Works
We’re tracking water and electricity savings from building to building, and encouraging sustainable personal action along the way to show impact and celebrate those who: take action, and see impact!
First, before the competition begins, a baseline of water and electricity usage is measured from every building. That way everyone is competing from a level playing field.
Then, campus buildings are grouped by similar use during the competition; ranging from athletic buildings, to administrative offices, to dorms. Everyone needs a friendly rival to keep the challenge exciting.
Next, progress is tracked throughout the competition, and winners are determined by percent reduction against their OWN baseline—your building, your impact, your collective success!
Finally, one building is deemed the challenge winner based off of the largest percent reduction—taking home overall bragging rights. Honorable mentions are awarded for each building category, and one individual prize is presented to a randomly selected Energy Challenge Pledge signatory.
