Does the institution hold a campaign that meets the criteria for this credit?:

The name of the campaign(s):
Do It in The Dark, Heat is On

A brief description of the campaign(s):

Brandeis holds a yearly energy competition among dorms- entitled "Do It In the Dark". The competition has evolved over time from just first year students for a number of years to the whole campus in 2008-2009 to just older students currently. In 2011 we hope to make it even better by adding Lucid Design Dashboards. In 2009-2010 We also focused on heating use reduction- and last year gave away snuggies as part of the "Heat is On" campaign. Brandeis has many other outreach campaigns.

A brief description of the measured positive impact(s) of the campaign(s):

Energy use has shown a decrease during Do It in the Dark.

The website URL for the campaign:

We hope to measure energy use better in the future through Lucid Dashboards.
