Big Easter Switch Off: the results!
1 May 2014
Congratulations to everyone who joined in with the Big Easter Switch Off.
The energy savings you’ve helped make really is proof that we can all play a part in improving UCL’s environmental impact.
A Big Impact
Compared to last year’s Easter break, you helped save a whopping 49,916 kWh of energy. That’s enough energy to make up to 2 million cups of tea!
Over 450 staff and students pledged to take part in the campaign, from 50 departments and teams across UCL.
The Human Resources Division have won our competition to get the largest number of team pledges, with Communications & Marketing, SSEES, Museums and Public Engagement and the CHP Team being highly commended for their efforts.
Building on our success
If we switched off like this every weekend, UCL could save up to 1,766 tonnes of carbon and upwards of £283,000 in energy bills every year.
Getting more involved
The Switch Off can’t end here. Saving energy is just one change which we hope you’ll continue to make. But if you’re feeling inspired, why not get more involved?
