Led by the RAs, both residence halls achieved100% compliance on the winter break energy shutdown checklist (i.e. making sure lights were turned off, appliances were unplugged, windows and blinds were closed, thermostats were set back, etc.). Awards were given based on size and compliance - Brown Hall won $500 and Harrison Hall won $800 to spend on something fun for their common areas. Thanks for helping UNC save energy and money over winter break!
