Colby defeats Bowdoin, wins Dorm Electricity Competition

Not only did we beat Bowdoin, Colby as a whole saved 13.06% of our electrical load from the baseline, or 18,677 kWh during the 2017 Dorm Electricity Competition. That’s enough energy to power the entire campus for three  days, or about $2,300 worth of electricity. The winners overall winners are: Taylor, who had a 41% reduction in electricity consumption from their baseline, the first floor of Anthony, who saved 28.16%, and Apartment 117, who saved 32.89%. Even though the competition is over, this doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be mindful of the electricity that we’re using and avoid wasteful habits. Thanks to all who participated, on behalf of your Colby EcoReps.
