Longhorn Lights Out
You Did it Again! Another Successful Longhorn Lights Out!
At the end of the day on November 22, 2013, Longhorns across campus turned off lights and powered down in observance of Longhorn Lights Out (LLO), our campus-wide energy conservation initiative.
How did we do? Thanks to our campus community, we saved 111 kilowatts during this LLO effort!
How does that measure up? 111 kilowatts is equivalent to powering 42 Texas homes!
In a symbolic show of support, our iconic Tower joined the "Dark Side" as it remained dark throughout the event. (A shout-out to Project Management and Construction Services' awesome electrical crew for making that happen!)
During this time of year when we remember what we're thankful for, the Energy & Water Conservation team would like to thank each and every one of you for all you do to make our energy conservation program so successful. We couldn't do it without you!
Our Volunteers Make a Difference! Join us!
The success of Longhorn Lights Out (LLO) requires the efforts of many people on our team. And that includes our amazing volunteers, whose commitment and enthusiasm is unmatched! Join us for our next LLO in January 2014 (more information to come on the actual date). Volunteers receive a "Join the Dark Side" t-shirt and a celebratory pizza party after the event. To volunteer, contact us at email@example.com. We look forward to hearing from you!
Our Longhorn Lights Out volunteers are awesome!!
During the November 22, 2013 LLO, a joint effort of volunteers were on hand from the Cockrell School of Engineering, the College of Natural Sciences, the Moody College of Communication, and the School of Architecture.
We'd love to hear from you!
