POWERless

 

POWERless is a three-week energy competition among residence halls.

Its primary purpose is to increase awareness and practice of energy conservation behaviors while having fun.

In fall 2013, the POWERless competition featured 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. This competition only happens during fall POWERless competitions.

How POWERless Works

1. Set up a comparison of residences based on occupancy

Division I (high Occupancy)Division II (low occupancy)
Oaks Historic, Academic Pavilions
Colonnades Danieley
Historic Loy
Global Station at Mill Point

 

2. Monitor real-time energy use on the Building Dashboard

Global 4&5, Station at Mill Point buildings, and Danieley Center do not have real–time meters so energy consumption is entered once a week into the Building Dashboard during POWERless.

 

3. Commit to conserve energy

 

4. Announce winners & distribute prizes

Neighborhood winners: The neighborhood in each division that conserves the most energy gets their name on the POWERless trophy, which resides in the Moseley Center.

 

 

Building winners: Eligible* residents in the building in each division that conserves the most energy are placed in a raffle to win $50 Phoenix cash or a solar charger.

* To be eligible residents must have used the Commit to Conserve feature on the Building Dashboard (homepage tab) OR taken the Sustainability Pledge during POWERless.

 

Individual prizes: All individuals who use the Commit to Conserve feature on the Building Dashboard (homepage tab) OR take the Sustainability Pledge during POWERless are placed in a raffle for Phoenix Cash or a solar charger.
