While Virginia Tech has made, and will continue to make, reductions in building energy consumption, several large energy intensive, research-oriented buildings have been constructed on campus since the 2005 baseline year resulting in negative progress for this credit relative to 2005.
For the fifth year in a row, the Virginia Tech community exceeded its goal during Light’s Out!/Power Down! 2014 held on the Blacksburg campus June 26th. Preliminary results indicate the university reduced its campus electrical demand to an average 18,575 kilowatts for the hour. The goal was 21,000 kilowatts for the hour.
