Name of the campaign:
COA Energy Challenge

A brief description of the campaign:

During the winter of 2019, student members of the Campus Committee for Sustainability and the Community Energy Center implemented an energy use competition in COA residential housing. Over the course of one week in February, residents aim to reduce their electricity use the most, as compared to a measured baseline of the previous week’s electricity use. Each day, student coordinators send progress reports out to the community, along with energy information and energy-use reduction tips. Surveys before and after the competition invariably indicate an increase in student energy literacy, while overall reductions in dorm energy use during the week have thus far been significant.


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

The winning residence reduced their electricity consumption by 20%.
