It's been cold, it's been very cold....but... 

You've been putting in a great effort still! Polwarth leads the way having cut their electricity consumption by 23% so far this semester! Though Ash and Muirhead are still in contention for the top spot.

Remember, the hall with the largest saving at the end of the semester will win a £500 community fund. After that, all additional financial savings will be reinvested into LED lighting for residences. Here's to bright ideas!

Switch off and let's help light up campus!

Inter-Hall Energy Competition

Switch off and light up campus! Every time you turn off the kitchen light, unplug your charger or have a shorter shower you are directly supporting sustainability investments on campus. Plus your hall will also have the chance to win £500 to put towards something you collectively decide that will benefit all students in your halls.

Halls involved: ASH & Pendreich Way, Donnelly, Fraser, Polwarth, Willow Court, Beech Court, Muirhead, Juniper Court and Alexander Court

How can we win?
The University, in partnership with us here at the Union, will be monitoring energy usage across the halls mentioned above. The halls who make the biggest reduction in usage per person will win! This means there is an equal chance of winning for every hall, no matter how big or small the hall is.

We will be monitoring the leader board and posting it here so make sure you keep updated and get switching off those spare plugs, towel drying your hair or turning off your tv!
