This July was the hottest month in U.S. history. The record breaking heat was obvious in our energy use here at the TWP office. With the A/C on most days, we survived the outrageous temperatures here in For Collins, but it also meant that we were not able to meet our monthly goal of 10% energy reduction. However, as the temperatures here slowly begin to drop, and we move towards Fall weather, we hope to use far less energy in the coming months.
Note: The blue line indicates our 10% energy reduction goal, based off of 2010 and 2011’s averages (which are indicated in red).

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!
