POWERless is a 3-week energy competition among the residence halls to increase energy conservation awareness. Every semester students compete to achieve the largest percentage energy reduction in their Neighborhood and individual residential building. The competition began in the spring of 2008, and the winning building had an energy reduction of over 23%.The largest reduction by neighborhood was 15%.
To more accurately compare residences, large occupancy buildings are classified as Division I and small occupancy buildings are classified as Division II. Find out what Division your building is in and monitor energy use on the Building Dashboard. Global 4&5, Station at Mill Point, Colonnades C, D & E, Danieley Center and Trollinger House are updated weekly during the competition. Energy use for all other buildings is real-time.
This fall the POWERless competition will feature a new COMPETE to CONSERVE component. COMPETE to CONSERVE gives teams of students additional opportunities to conserve energy, earn points and win more prizes during POWERless.
