OUR VOLUNTEERS MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
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!
For the April 2014 LLO, we collaborated with Engineers for a Sustainable World (ESW) as we led a team of 33 volunteers, representing seven colleges at the university, to assist in reducing loads in common areas. Our teams turned off 4,080 light switches, 6 projectors, and 36 computer monitors in 28 buildings.
We'd love to hear from you!
