Office Energy Challenge Update: Very hot summer, higher electricity use

With record high temperatures in Fort Collins, we had a difficult time meeting our 10% energy reduction goal in June. With the air conditioning going 40 hours per week, we just barely missed our reduction goal. We hope to make up for this over the long-term, and are positive that we will meet our goal over the one-year average. The silver-lining: we are saving energy in a lot of other areas by changing our habits in the office and being conscious about how we use energy!

Thank you to Rick England, owner of Best Energy Monitor, for his dedication to helping us reduce our energy consumption!
