When the clock strikes midnight on February 24th, join the entire Penn community and participate in in the campus-wide Energy Reduction Challenge. Students, staff, and faculty are encouraged to reduce their energy usage over a 24-hour period, from 12:00 A.M. to 11:59 P.M. on Wednesday, February 24th. Turn off your lights, unplug your appliances, turn down the heat and put on a sweater! Let’s see how much energy we can save, together.
Savings from the Energy Reduction Challenge will go towards funding additional undergraduate Climate Action Research Grants! These grants are designed to support projects that lead to environmentally sustainable programs and policies, contribute to scientific innovations related to sustainability, or deepen our understanding of the social, cultural, artistic, and humanistic aspects of sustainability.
