Power Down Hour to be held today
The entire campus is encouraged to turn off lights, computers and equipment wherever possible from noon to 1 p.m. today for Power Down Hour.
The activity is part of the University's new energy conservation awareness campaign, "Boiler Up, Power Down," which challenges faculty, staff and students to change their behavior to support a more environmentally responsible and cost-efficient Purdue.
Purdue Utilities will closely monitor campus electric power consumption before, during and after Power Down Hour to determine the impact of campus participation.
Results will be reported during Purdue's Earth Day celebration at 1:30 p.m. Thursday in Academy Park, located between Purdue Memorial Union and Heavilon Hall. In the event of rain, the celebration will be moved to Purdue Memorial Union's Great Hall.
